    Thats what it comes down to for me, morally you shoudl continue to look after the children like they were still your own but that should be your choice. I just dont think the courts should have the right to make this guy pay a penny to his horrible excuse for a wife if he doesnt want to. The "women" should of kept better track of all her **** buddies and make them pay.

    If they weren't a parent before, how are they "punished" by not becoming a parent after? Nobody has a right to be a parent to a child they don't even know exists.

I dont think its right that a court should make this man pay if he doesnt want to, thats his right.
    By using the child as a wedge? Oh man.

    The courts are involved due to the overwhelming amount of young males who would shirk that responsibility. Either they pay, or we do.

    Of course the government made that choice and then people like yourself are deciding to use that as their argument. Don't be surprised if I don't respect it.

    Actually, they do. Having never consented to give up their parental rights, they cannot lose them, even if they didn't know they existed. Only a court can grant an involuntary termination of parental rights, but the reasoning is very specific, and non-notification isn't one of them.

    not sure where you got that from. I would get back at the mother by having little to no contact with her ever again and she would not get a single penny directly from me. Any money for the kids would go into secure savings accoutns or I would take them to the store and buy them clothes etc myself.

    Get a grip. My supposition as to what might have happened, in light of the dearth of real reporting on the issue, is a good as yours. You've been speculating every bit as much. At least I'll labeled my speculation for what it is.
