No. If the parents are living together the law assumes they taking care of the needs of their minor child/children (at least one would hope that is the case).

The parents of the child are liable for support - not their spouses.


If the child was conceived AFTER your marriage , it is grounds for divorce.


If you're the noncustodial parent, you might be liable. The fact that your husband has a child by someone else is irrelevant to this.


Of course not, but keep in mind that the children of a married woman are presumed to be those of her husband unless/until proven otherwise.


This begs the question, "Why would you?" and perhaps, "How is it any of their business?" Supposing it was it was any of their concern however. You would simply look them in the face and say, "My husband has a child by another woman."


The issue would be adultery, but not who she was with.


He could very well be arrested as he has failed to pay the support money, he shold pay then have a wife and child.


Since you have become pregnant from having affair with another man and if your husband has forgiven you and is acceptable of the baby then the two of you can raise that child. However, if the biological father is interested in his own baby then he has some visitation rights. If you husband does not want to raise another man's baby then you will have to consider at least separation from your husband or divorce if you want to raise this child alone. The man you had the affair with should pay child support. You would be wise to seek legal advice.


To clarify, if you mean a woman has had an affair and become pregnant? If this is the case, and the husband is aware of it, he can order a paternity test to determine if the child is his or not. If it is not, as far as I know, the woman can go after the man who fathered the child for financial support. Support obligations only belong to the actual biological father OR a father who has legally adopted a child. There is a whole moral issue though - if the parents are staying together, does the husband want to alienate this child by not supporting it and how would he live in the same house and not support it? So really it depends on if the couple stays together. If they don't, the husband has NO obligation to support the child.



* In some cases yes she can get alimony and often will be able to keep the house as well as receive child support. Any man who leaves his wife and children without proper support isn't much of a man.


I suggest you file a motion in court to declare the existence of father/child relationship. Be prepared to pay child support and confront a very angry husband!


Yes, unless the child is being adopted by someone else like her husband.


iN vIRGINIA, THE BABY BORN TO A MARRIAGE IS CONSIDERED THE HUSBAND'S CHILD, SO IF THE REAL FATHER WANTS THE BABY , IT IS UP TO THE HUSBAND AND THE COURT. aS FOR COLLECTING CHILD SUPPORT FROM THE HUSBAND, i ASSUME HE IS NOT LIVING WITH THE MOTHER, THERE IS SOMETHING KNOWN AS DNA TESTING THAT THE JUDGE WILL USE.



You won't have to pay it by writing a check or giving money to the mother. BUT, if she pursues the matter you can lose money from a joint bank account or through a lawsuit against your husband. She could also get a garnishment of his wage.


No, she has no way to collect. Child support is determined both by the husbands ability to pay and the woman's need. For example- if your husband makes $40k a year and the woman doesn't work, the court would order the woman to work 40 hrs/week to support her own child and she'd have to furnish proof to the court that she was doing that. An illegal alien doesn't have the ability to do that- they have no social security number and pay no taxes. They can't have a legal job- therefore, she wouldn't have any ground to stand on in a family court.


No! The baby isn't his, why should he have to pay for it? If the real father decided not to stay, he could be taken to court for support. The law assumes that when a married woman has a baby it belongs to her husband. Even with DNA proof that would exonerate the father as the biological contributor, the answer is YES. A man who finds himself in this type of situation should consult with an attorney in his jurisdiction who can explain his options, responsibilities and legal rights.


Possibly. Unless they were legally separated or the boyfriend's paternity has been established, the husband is presumed to be the father of the child in question.


This question is a complicated one in that the laws of paternity do not necessarily establish the biological father as the father for child support purposes but rather look to the circumstances surrounding the case. Your husband is what is known as a presumed father, which is essentially a man that was married to the mother when the child was born, legally agreed to be the father of his wife's child (by signing the birth certificate, and has acted and behaved as the child's father. You cannot receive child support from both the presumed father (if he is still your husband) and the biological father (assuming he admits to being the father) and a court would likely determine your husband to be the father for purposes of child support.



Bring in another woman.
