How Entertaining is Paternity Fraud? Far too often we find entertainment in the suffering of others, without so much as a thought to how the lives of those involved are effected. Paternity Fraud, the act of misleading a man and a child in to believing they are connected through a biological (genetic) bond, is one […]
Great blog post discussing paternity fraud. The laws need to be changed to allow men to either challenge a finding of paternity or revoke any declaration of paternity within three (3) years of discovering evidence that they have been the victim of paternity fraud.
The laws need to be changed to allow for lawsuits to be filed for damages resulting from paternity fraud, including damages for pain and suffering and punitive damages in appropriate cases where the evidence is clear that the paternity fraud was intentional.
There is no scenario that can be concocted which can completely capture a full comparison of Paternity Fraud. It is a matter of reality, that a man, no matter how hard he may try, cannot easily convince a woman that she is the mother of a child, which was in reality mothered by another woman. Let’s face it, barring a coma, women are quite well aware of giving birth to a child. Women are quite well aware of conceiving a child, they know they are pregnant, and they experience child birth. Men on the other hand, well, they are left to trust the fact that they are in a relationship that has a reasonable expectation of trust, honesty, and commitment that will overpower any level of doubt as to whether they fathered the child their female partner is attributing his fatherhood to.
A man in Great Britain wins a £250,000 settlement for paternity fraud.
Richard Mason received the £250,000 settlement from his ex-wife after he found out that she betrayed him for almost 20 years after he found out that he was not the biological father of her three sons as he had been infertile since birth.
Stories like this one are the reason that any man that has any doubt whatsoever that he may not be the biological father of his children should research the laws in their state to determine how long they have to contest the finding of paternity and whether their state permits civil damages for paternity fraud.
This story is good news although there are very few states in the United States that have any penalty for paternity fraud which is outrageous.
