Were you married at the time the children were born? Is your name on the birth certificates? If you were already divorced and your name is not the birth certificates (and if you were divorced then your name wouldn't on the b.c. without your permission/a court order), then you have no obligation. It doesn't matter that they have your last name. If, however, you were married at the time they were born and your name is on the b.c., that's a different story.In that case, there's a possiability you could still be held legally responsible for them, even if a DNA test proves they're not your biological children. The reason being is that there is a time limit for a man to deny paternity. Once it passes, you're out of luck.The laws do vary from state to state, so I'd suggest you speak with an attorney about it.

Can your exwife get child support if the child is not yours but you were married to her but separated when she had the child?

In many jurisdictions, the husband is presumed to be the child's father unless paternity is established by other means. The biological father would likely be required to pay child support even if the mother is married to someone else.

My exwife and I have joint custody so no one has ever paid child support My son decided to live with his mom full-time and doesn't want any visitation am I obligated to pay my ex child support?

no you are not if he chooses to live with her full time. You would only be responsible for paying child support IF the court ordered such, which would require a hearing to change the final divorce decree. The ex cannot just order you to pay it out of the blue without having changed the original court documents. ---- It should be noted that you may wish to do a voluntary child support order. Waiting for her to file would result in you paying all court costs. My question though is why the change with the child? Was there a problem in your home that resulted in this decision?
