Funny how every situation where you have been openly deceived you can pretty much sue or bring about criminal charges. Yet raising someone else's child, nothing to see here.

That is the angle that men in this situation need to take. Get it out of the jurisdiction of family court and into the "regular" courts.

I'm waiting for the paternity and child support murders to take off. Paying child support and pushed into a terrible mental state is just reality for divorced men. Right now the suicide rates are super high, but at some point a homicide and custody issue will be a US or international news story. Particularly if it's a woman that kills her ex-husband because she's paying child support.

Could it be fraud by falsifying details of a state document? (birth certificate)

With all the greedy lawyers you would assume that it would be standard practice. Not a lawyer so I really don't know why it is not persued but I imagine the social stigma would be pretty harsh.

I wonder if the result of the case would have been different if he had not been representing himself. Family law is messed up and there are loop holes. Having dba results ignored because he didn't follow court procedure seems like an expensive mistake.

Not everyone understands that while an attorney's services can be expensive, it's can be more costly to engage the judiciary without proper legal representation. I've known a good few men who have gone into a divorce court and refused to even consider hiring and attorney to represent them because they feared the lawyer's bill. It's only when they later discuss their divorce with other divorced men do they find out that they're being exploited or outright screwed in clear violation of the law.

Yeah. Saw it with my brother. Devistated when his wife told him she was leaving him for a mutual friend. He started off without representation and very broken. My parents stepped and got him a lawyer and once he realized she was trying to take full custody of their kids he snapped out of it.

He got custody of his kids. Turns out the kid she was pregnant with at the time was not his. She had it while they were still married, but he didn't have to really do anything special and the other two he raised were his. He got custody and has them during the weekdays and she has them every other weekend during the school year. They alternate weeks during the summers. I imagine that without that lawyer she would have got custody and he would probably have gotten stuck with child support. I have never asked, but since he has custody as their primary parent I don't think he has to pay her support.

There are other cases where this has happened. Once you sign the birth certificate, you're on the hook . . .
