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 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.
