    According to the courts in Kansas - YES

    But perhaps lesbian/gay couples have higher/lesser privileges/responsibilities.

    That is how it works more or less.

    People place entirely too much emphasis on "the children." Children are important, yes, and children "deserve" support, yes.... but only by virtue of them having less rights than an adult. But who should care for those children? The person for whom they represent a genetic investment.

    I don't have a responsibility to ensure your kids are clothed, or fed, or entertained - YOU do. And if you want to put your kids in JCrew and Hollister, that is your business.... not mine. If you want to feed your kids steak every day, that is your business... not mine. If you want to send your kids to an Ivy League school, that is your business... not mine. In this case, those are not his kids. He has no responsibility to them and their standard of living, regardless of how long he was fulfilling that role out of ignorance. Their mother will either have to double HER efforts to ensure the success of her genetic investment, or maybe she should sue their genetic fathers for child support.

    Actually that's exactly how it is determined. Then all the grey zone comes in afterwards. If it would have turned out my dad wasnt my blood father I would have made my mom cancel child support right away. Because its just not right to punch a guy in the nuts once let alone twice. A man has been carrying his lineage around since the beginning of man and you want them to throw that out the window because a woman cheated and a court sided with her?

    People may attack a "daddy detractor" all they want but that doesnt mean he hates the kids he was ONCE (hypothetically) attached too. It just means he wants/need to be able to spread HIS seed and breed as nature intended. Kudos to anyone who can raise a child not their own. But how dare you shame anyone not willing to step up to your heightened morals. Not everyone is a super hero. If she wanted exclusive rights to his money she should have kept her vagina exclusive to his penis.

    And it sounds like there has been some paperwork filed that has made that legally so, and not applicable in this case. Now suppose you had done no paperwork and you became a single "father". The biological father would have every legal right to sue for custody and could very well win. You may morally be the father, but not legally.

    this is just an awful situation for everyone involved, especially the poor kiddos.

    i have to note that there is now DNA evidence, which means that the biological fathers can be probably compelled to take a paternity test. so, after pinning down the real fathers, can the mother then sue to collect back and future child support from them, as well? my guess is yes. so, in this scenario, she could be collecting child support from three biological fathers and one non-biological father, and any of the biological fathers could sue for custody. this whole situation just sucks. cheaters really cause massive problems. if you want to **** around, don't get married.

    When it comes to paternity. He was tricked into raising the kids and deserves to get money back. With interest.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    If the children were receiving support throughout the marriage, I don't think any support can be collected in arrears.

    Perhaps the guy in the article could sue for recompense, but I also doubt that. It's pretty difficult to prove what kind of support he gave to each child. Besides, courts don't want to actually hang a price on an individual child; they'd rather continue to use child support as a punitive measure instead of addressing the mountains of case law that make it so.

    Problem is that the mother had multiple affairs, the three children in question have three different fathers, and the mother apparently didn't know they weren't her husbands kids until the divorce and paternity testing.

    I see a two or three part special on Maury during sweeps week.

    This story raises a lot of questions.
    For one, what really makes a father? Is it biology, or is it raising children? If it's the latter, why did the slut get his children after the divorce? If it's the former, why does he have to pay child support?
