Ok, got that, still not clear about who the court would have granted paternity to if they were both fighting to disown her though.
Well, I'm not absolutely clear either, but I don't know why a paternity test would not stand up in court. A man should not be held responsible for a
child that isn't his, unless he has promised to do so or claimed the child as his.
The child does not have to get punished; just find the biological father to pay the child support.
If you’re going to hold the presumed father responsible regardless then grant him full custody of the child in question and in doing so he would
continue to pay child support and the mother gets punished? How’s that?
I could never support using the child as a game piece to punish one or the other parent. The custody of the child should be determined based on the
interest of the child and not to punish one or the other. So, no, I don't support that at all.
This mindset of anger at the women and using the child's support or custody as a weapon or punishment really has me concerned. In fact, you guys
claim you stand for the child, even the unborn child, you declare your concern and emotional attachment to it, but then, you'd withdraw support from
that child to 'get at' or punish the mother in a heartbeat.
It just seems a bit disingenuous to me...
I'm sorry, almost everything you have said in this thread shows that your first concern is not FOR the child, but AGAINST the woman. I understand
anger at women. I'm not crazy about most of them, myself, but be careful where you aim your arrows.
