In the following YouTube video, we will see the story of Carnell Alexander who owes over $30,000 to the State of Michigan over unpaid child support fees. Mr. Alexander is living in poverty, and unable to get a job since the money will be taken automatically from his paychecks. He also faces jail time for inability to pay. The only problem is that DNA paternity tests prove he isn't the child's Father. In fact, the Mother admits she only wrote his name down on the birth certificate (without his authorization) in order to obtain welfare.
This is a despicable miscarriage of justice. If anything, it is the Mother who should be facing criminal charges for falsely declaring this man to be the father of her child. Despite having a DNA test proving there is a 0.00% chance of paternity, Mr. Alexander is still at risk of homelessness and imprisonment.
This case is a classic example of men's rights being trampled on despite having absolute proof of his lack of liability to the mother or her child. In fact, it is amazing to me that making intentional material misrepresentations on a state document (birth certificate) isn't a crime. I think it is time for falsifying birth certificates to fall "Under penalty of perjury."
It is only as her suit has moved forward that Wayne County dismissed the child support case against her client. Alexander got official notice days ago, that after a 26-year-long fight he doesn’t owe child support for a child that is not his. Source
A Texas man is battling a court order that mandates he must pay tens of thousands in child support for a child that he did not biologically father and who he met only once.
In 2003, a child support court in Texas ruled that Gabriel Cornejo, 45, had to pay child support to his ex-girlfriend who had recently given birth because she vowed that there was no way he wasn’t the rightful dad.
Cornejo, who is currently raising three children of his own and two nephews, claimed that he was not made aware of this and only found out about the child support payments last year when a deputy served him court papers claiming that the state of Texas lists him as having another child. He soon met the minor for the first and only time – describing her as a “wonderful girl” – but after taking a DNA test, learned she was not his after all.
Only Cornejo’s ex-girlfriend and the state still want the $65,000 in back payments.
Thomas did not think his wife was cheating on him when she became pregnant
He asked for a DNA test when the child turned three which proved he wasn't the father
Oklahoma law says someone must ask for a paternity test within two years or be forced to pay child support
Atkins already knows DNA has proven he’s not the father of his ex-wife’s daughter, who was 2 years old when the couple divorced. But since the truth didn’t come out until the girl was 11 and his name remains on the birth certificate, he is legally obligated to keep paying child support until she turns 19, reports KDVR. “It doesn’t make any sense to me,” said Atkins, who hasn’t had contact with the now-15-year-old girl in four years. The 48-year-old said he should be allowed to maintain visitation with a girl he considered his daughter or if not, be allowed to stop paying $730 a month in child support and health insurance. "I just want my daughter, but I can't even see her, but yet I'm still paying child support. And the biological father has been found and he gets to spend time with her. I don't get nothing,” Atkins said.
An Iowa man says he is being forced to pay for support for a child that isn't his, and says despite DNA evidence that proves he's not the father, he is still ordered to pay up. "I've been to Des Moines, I've been to the child support recovery unit. I've been in six or seven offices where they just slam the doors in my face," Willie Shorter said. He produced results from a DNA test conducted by a lab back in 1998, where another man was pronounced the biological father with a 99.98 probability. "They told me they can't use this information. They told me I have to get a lawyer," he said.

Well, another issue (or question, I should say) is that if the mother admitted about flat out lying about everything, WHY HASNT SHE WAIVED THE CHILD SUPPORT OWED?
I know for a fact that you can do that.
Then again, If this man is broke and can't afford an attorney, there's not a whole lot that he can do. Unfortunately, any court appointed attorney is going to be the dumbest SOB to ever walk the planet, so that wouldn't help either.
What he needs to do is file a motion to reduce child support which would at least put the issue on record, a lawsuit against her for fraudulently signing his name to the birth certificate (which is crime if he did not consent to it), that right there is illegal, on top of committing welfare fraud. Again, without a decent attorney, he would have a lot of trouble doing this.
I work at a family law firm in Michigan so I have a little insight into my state's perverted bias towards all things related to the mother and complete disregard to the father and their rights.

But not everyone can sleep around though.
It may be an option for you and other people, but to others it isn't.
There are others who want a committed relationship and don't like the idea of sleeping around for various reasons.
