Paternity Fraud exposes Best Interest
interest, best lie or best cash cow?
There seems to be a logical basis for the milkman
statutes. While I do not support a return to 15th / 16th century common law where the women and children were
chattel, we cannot allow the continued deception of our opponents to falsely claim that the English common law
supported paternity fraud.
The true Lord Mansfield rule would NEVER cause a man to pay
child support to an adulterous wife because the mother, the child and all property belonged to the
husband. The duped dad would get custody of the child and he would not
surrender any money nor assets to the adulterous wife for having an affair and another man's baby.
There has to be a flaw in any judicial or administrative
system that rewards a responsible adult for irresponsible behavior.
If this approach is acceptable to anyone with common
sense, there should be no disagreement if women were forced to reward men for doing the same
irresponsible thing. Right?
For example, the husband cheats on his wife, impregnates his mistress and the couple divorces. Then his wife
has to pay him for the other woman's child upon divorce because he wants child support, alimony and the matital
home because the child needs a place to live.
How many of us would say that the scenario described
above is fair and just? And just try telling the ex-wife, it's her fault for not learning about the
ex-husband's affair sooner. Too late!
Can you imagine the ex-wife's reaction when a judge tells
here that "you should have found out before the child's 2nd through 5th birthday". What??
