    Ok, and if he has no reason to doubt the mother than exactly why would he? .

Frankly, if I was to support a child support system by the state(in which I don't) it would have go towards the child and set up in a way where the mother can not use it for anything else. Not sure how that work, but that is how it should be.

    Dad must pay child support for 3 kids that aren't his: Court rules

Whatever happened in the last year to cause the marriage to break up, it can't be denied that he at least seriously gave it a go and didn't just bolt. He may have had some doubts about the parentage of his three daughters but he didn't abandon them or his wife. What happened recently, that causes him to fight child support, might have absolutely nothing to do with his relationship with the children themselves.
    From my reading of the article it just says he was aware of the affairs at some point before the results came back. Is it specified that he knew for a significant period of time or just something that came out in the course of a messy breakup and thus prompted the test?

    Yeah..yeah...If we are allowed to get back to the real world for a second its generally understood that part of the foundation of a relationship is trust and clearly a part of that is not thinking they are constantly cheating on you and asking for DNA tests.

    It just makes no sense to say the contract is legally binding even if the kid is the result of cheating.

    and your inability to define how such a system would work is the same problem the government has

    I could be wrong, but it was my understanding that he knew about his wife's affairs early in the marriage and paternity only became an issue during the divorce.

    Then they shouldn't have a child support system.

    Here in Ohio, the money is paid to the court, who then disburses to the mother. They can oversee how the money is spent, to some degree, and will hear any challenge made to her use of the money. She could have her children taken from her if they are not being taken care of. It's not perfect, but it's the best they have come up with so far.

    And some children would spend the money on games, etc, not food, so it's probably best that it doesn't go directly to the children.

    they do
    it's administered thru the custodial parents

    it is a terribly flawed system, not unlike sending welfare checks to layabout parents of kids in a single-parent household and hoping the kids receive enough of it to maintain their welfare
    but unfortunately, it is better than any other system yet devised

    Wrong.

    You don't know WTF you're talking about.

    Wrong again.
