Am I legally responsible...

Am I legally responsible for child-support of children that were conceived when I had sex with a prostitute. Condoms were not being used.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Actually, it's British Columbia. I thought this was a Canadian site.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

This is general information and not legal advice. No attorney-client relationship is formed. This is for educational purposes only.

This is actually an international site.

The short answer is yes, you will be responsible for child-support of children conceived when you had sex with a prostitute. However, if she brings a paternity/parentage suite against you, it is also your right to demand a DNA test, as there may have been others with whom she had unprotected sex.
