Although I feel fathers should, in most cases, be part of their children's lives and certainly take responsibility for paying child support, it's dishonest to collect child support for two children when you only had one at home. If this was the agreement with the court, then yes, your ex can make you pay back some of that money. Let's hope he has a big heart! Marcy

It is fraud to collect child support for (2) children if a person only has (1) child. The person should absolutely return the money, it is not her's to keep.

If a man was forced into an act that led to a woman becoming pregnant does he have to pay child support?

The court would only consider hearing the "forced into an act" claim if the male can prove beyond a doubt that he was literally held captive and his life was in jeopardy. If the mother chooses to file for child support and the alledged father contests the suit, the court will order a paternity test. The results of the test will determine if the male will be financially obligated. Other issues such as the possible coercion, deception, etc. by the female would not be relevant. Actually, the man's life doesnt have to be endangered for sex to be considered forced. That is like saying only female rape victims' whose lives were theatened were actually raped. If he didnt consent it is rape. And a man is not legally responsible for a child if the woman raped him. also, in certain states he could sue her for "stealing" his sperm

If the mother says the child is yours and you do not fight it and demand a DNA test, and she was not married at the time of birth, yes, you can be forced to support a child that is not yours. Conversely, if you were married to her when the child was conceived and or born you will be responsible for child support as the child was made during your marriage.see links
