Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Have the husband and wife reconciled? Who has acted as a father to the twins? Was the boyfriend ordered to pay child support by a court?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
No they are divorced now but had gotten together briefly since the children were born. There is another man who is involved with the children that is believed to be the father. Jose has never said the twins were his and swears she forged his name on the birth certificate because he was not at the hospital or with her at that time. Jose is court ordered to pay child support.
I guess my last one didn't post. I do not believe he contested anything for the reasons he didn't know what his rights were and he didn't want his now x wife getting in trouble she has like six kids. He has a heart unfortunately. That why were in this situation
I see. Thank you for providing this additional information.Unfortunately, when the court was determining whether to award the mother child support, that would typically have been the time for Jose to have contested paternity and allege that the mother forged the birth certificate.Since paternity has been established (which is a prerequisite for ordering child support), it would now be too late to raise these allegations unless Jose has come across some new evidence to support his claims that he did not know about when the order of support was entered. If he has, then he could file suit against the mother for paternity fraud, seeking damages against her for the support he has paid and a declaration by the court that he is not the father of the children.This is a difficult case to prove typically, so he would need to retain an experienced local family law attorney if he wishes to pursue such an action.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
