To get this straight you are asking if a man had a child not to his wife, would his wife have to pay any child support for that child that is not hers? No she does not have to pay, the man does, but in saying that if the amount is direct credited out of the mans bank account that is in joint names with the wife then it seems she is paying, and in a way she is paying if you do share all finances as husband and wife she misses out on the money that the man must pay for child support.
