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

    MONTREAL - A father has been ordered to pay child support to his ex-wife despite results of DNA testing that found three of the four children he helped raise are not biologically his, a Quebec Superior Court ruled.

    The man learned the shocking news after he demanded DNA testing when he and his wife of 16 years separated in April 2010.

    I have absolutely no sympathy for this man. Married for sixteen years, raising four children for over a decade-- and he demands a paternity test when he gets a divorce? I think about the message that sends his children and all I can think is "**** this guy". And I reject the notion that, again, after a decade of raising three children that he is anything but their real father.

    Since he's raised the children as his I find it tacky that he'd try to get out of child support.

    However the woman who allegedly admits to having slept around, and who believes the three girls all have different fathers....she's a piece of **** tramp. He'd likely have done differently if she'd been honest when the first child was born. Her lies created this situation, and I understand his reaction...even if I don't like it.

    If he suspect those kids were not biologically his then he should have got dna tested right there and then, not after raising the kids for a decade or so. That said hopefully his wife didn't get anything except for child support in the divorce.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Article isnt available to me. But how do you know that he behaved as their real father. He could have known full well or in the back of his mind for quite some period of time that they were not his. There is always more to a story than is shared. However if he raised/loved/supported them as his own i agree as a father he should have been willing to continue supporting them regardless. What about the real fathers, can she collect from him and them? And why cant she go after them? She had enough energy to sleep around to tjat extent but not to track them down and provide her illegitimate children with their real fathers?

    Sometimes the emotional betrayal gets in the way of doing what's right.
    I do think there should be some kind of punishment for infidelity though.

    It's as if courts just brush it aside, but that is spousal abuse in my book.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I don't see the problem here.

    If the guy isn't the father of the kids, he just isn't the father of the kids. Acting in the role of a father doesn't change that.

    Sounds as reasonable as requiring that totally unrealted taxpayers pick up the tab, the likely alternative.

    Just a couple of points of clarification. Firstly, the husband testified that he was aware the wife had affairs. Secondly, the youngest child, his only son, is biologically his - his three oldest, daughters, are not biologically his - thus, he was still if not in love with her, in bed with her, well after the infidelity and thus accepting of her lifestyle. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, this is an order for "child support" not spousal support - the children have only known one father and they should not be punished for the sins of their parents, particularly the mother's.

    Not enough info is given for me to really think about this one - how *long* did he know they weren't really his children? Did they divorce because she had cheated time and again? OR did he learn of this years ago?

    I think that matters - it's really key . . . I go two ways: If he knew years ago and accepted it - and they're divorcing now for other reasons - then he should support his children. You don't have to be biologically related in order to be *a father* to children . . . the children did nothing wrong.

    If he *just* found out - and this affair-affair-affair revelation is why he divorced her and demanded testing then - I don't know - I'm tempted to say he shouldn't pay support . . . but the support isn't for *her* - it's for *the kids* - and if they're divorced they're suffering enough. IT's not their fault, again, their mother cheated.

    Poor kids. This is THEIR father regardless . . . and he's rejecting them and, honestly, hating them.

    Now that I've thought about it - he's quite vile . . . I can't decide if he's more disgusting or just as disgusting as she is.

    What a ****ed up situation and the ones really suffering are their kids - every shred of a possibly reasonably life they've had was just ripped away - and then they were **** on to add to it.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Aside from the fact that we've had this argument before, you do realize that this news story is the courts acting according to my views and not yours, right?

    He is not the biological father of three of his four children. The court is demanding, rightfully, that he pay child support for those three anyway because they are still his children.

    Somehow, people have gotten the impression that I don't approve of the court's decision. This is not the case.
