Yes, if you were married. The laws are very against men. If you were married, all the children were born when you were marrried, and she cheated you are still condisered there father and have to pay. I know it makes no sense. The laws date back to the 1800's and NEED TO BE CHANGED.

In many states (and it may be in all states for all I know) a married man can challenge paternity as long as he does it *during the divorce process*. If he doesn't do it then, once the divorce is granted, he's out of luck. Even if the children are later proven (via a DNA test) not to be his, he still has to support them. Laws vary from state to state, so speak with an attorney.

The laws regarding this type of situation are slowly changing, because there are entirely too many men being forced to pay child support for children they were 'tricked' into believe were theirs, while the actual biological fathers never have to pay a dime.

Visitation and child support are separate issues. One does not depend on the other. Parents must provide support for their children. There are many variations in visitation rights and those do not generally affect child support obligations.Visitation and child support are separate issues. One does not depend on the other.

Yes, you helped bring those children into the world and need to help support them.

No. Illness and/or physical impairment does not relieve a parent the obligation to support his or her minor child/children. Even if said person is receiving SSD and/or some other type of disability benefits those benefits can be garnished for child support.

Only if the child support is past due from before the child was 18. child support is only paid up until the age of 18, there may be exceptions for those with children that have disabilities.

This child here, not that chikd there. Similarly, these children here, not those children over there.
