I'm living in Ontario Canada and i've been paying child

I'm living in Ontario Canada and i've been paying child support for 6 years on a child i believe is not mine. The mother and I started our relationship 11 years ago. It ended recently. I've never lived with the mother fulltime although due to work, i often stayed a night or two a week at their place. I've picked up the daughter from school. The mother has led the girl to believe I'm her father. I've given presents and gifts as well. 6 years ago when the child was 4, i entered an email agreement where i stated the child was mine and i'd accept responsibility to pay child support for her. Recently, as I'm married to another, i decided against continuing this relationship. The mother has since threatened to take me to court if I don't continue payments of child support and spousal support. Should I continue to do so?

I am the husband. I purchase home from wife on August 2015.

I am the husband. I purchase home from wife on August 2015. Wife paid rent in the amount of $ 900.00 per month for the months of August, September and October 2015. Wife monthly I&E had change from $ 9,258.00 on August 2015 down to $ $ 3,859.00. Her expenses dropped over 41% per month. Temporary spousal support was base on her I&E of $ 9,258 for this time period up to current status. I am contending temporary spousal support should have been reduced in the amount $ 1,781.00 per month in addition to the BK hardship of $ 1,750.00. What do I need to do to recoup my temporary spousal support over payment for this time frame?

S (my first cousin) daughter Rena married a man and had

Betty's (my first cousin) daughter Rena married a man and had three sons by him, this was over six years ago. In January of 2010, Rena had a very bad stroke shortly after the birth of her last son. She almost died. After a stay in the hospital, Rena came home to live and be cared for by Betty. The last son came there shortly after birth to love there with Betty until recently when his father took him back. Rena has been in Betty's care there at the house from 2010 until the present. Rena's husband found a new live-in girlfriend a few months after Rena's stroke. He has not divorced her.Her husband has not contributed to her care out of his pocket monetarily at all. He applied for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Needless to say, if there is any money coming to Rena, her husband is collecting it all. At first Rena was receiving home health care whereby: nurses would come to house to care for her, she could get supplies, therapy and such. Her husband has cut off the services Rena was getting, so she is not receiving any help or services beyond what her mother is doing for her. Her husband did not work for the first three years after Rena's stroke, however he is working now. He claimed Rena and the baby on his taxes even though they were not living with him. He still claims Rena on his taxes. He was bought about four vehicles since Rena's stroke. This is a heart wrenching situation, and he is a despicable human being!!!Betty has kept good records of all dates, times of any hospital visits. Betty and her husband Maurice are retired and on fixed incomes. They have kept records of monies they have spent out of pocket for their daughter.1. Is any of his behavior concerning Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security illegal?2. Is his claiming his wife and infant son on his taxes illegal?3. He is committing adultery, can Betty sue for divorce on behalf of Rena? At least this way Rena can receive the services that he needs.
