Paternity test questions

I recently posted a thread about my wife cheating on me after three days of talking she finally told me why and how, the truth this time.

I used to play mind games with her and would tell her I was seeing other women, this obviously messed her up in combination of the Death of our first born son. Anyway she was working and met a coworker who she had sex with out of revenge I guess and she said he wore a condom. This was after we had sex and I wore no condom and "released inside her". Anyhow she gets pregnant

The guy spots her one day with her baby bump and asks if it's his she told him don't worry about it. He then threatened to to tell me so that is what began the year long affair to keep him silent. After the baby was born he saw her again and asked if she would get a test done saying he wanted to be there.

After she confessed to me I immediately started thinking of my child and my rights as the man who has been raising her, she is only 2 and has only been around him a few times.

Is there any way this man can claim parent rights over me when I was there from her birth to now taking care of her while he has not supported at all, except by sleeping with my wife to keep from telling me about them? He has no job, lives with his mother and it is a drug related inviroment.

Re: Paternity test questions

Did the test show if you are the father?

File for D.

She has been cheating and is still lying to you.

now it is a year and not the small amount of time that she told you.

She can't remember her lies.

Go see your attorney. tell her she can go live with her boyfriend. How would she feel if you had an A?

And stop the games, this is not helping, telling her that you had a A.

Keep posting in one thread. Do not keep starting new ones.

Re: Paternity test questions

If your name is on the birth certificate then the kid is yours as far as I know from reading on these boards. You may want to check with an attorney though.

I would not believe the bull**** about her wanting revenge and him threatening her. Most guys who have affairs with women don't want the responsibly of a kid, they just want the sex. Your wife is not a very good person to say it nicely. You have absolutely no idea what she is capable of, what she has done to you is probably one of the worst things any human being can do to another, don't take responsibility for her treating you like crap. You wife is not to believed in anything.

I'm very sorry dude.

Re: Paternity test questions

Wow, just, wow.


You used to tell her you were seeing other women? Now, I understand why you blame yourself for the problems in your marriage. No, her affair wasn't right, but please add some major context because you don't look to good either. Now, Paternity fraud is worse than cheating to me, but mental abuse is right there and it is what you did by constantly attacking your wife's self worth.

Oh and you realize what she said is akin to sexual assault charges right? Yes, look it up. Extortion for sex is a punishable offense in some states. So, now that it is out in the open, the first thing you do is suggest she talks to the cops. I say this for two reasons:
1) He needs to be punished because he may have done this to other women.
2) We have a few threads where women have made similar accusations and have backed off when pushed to file actual charges against their AP.

If he has the money to hire a lawyer and can convince a presiding judge with any substantiating evidence to the fact, then it's a real possibility! And in such a hearing, it can get awfully ugly in there!

In any event, you ought to bottom line her and just "cash her check" and file for divorce!

We haven't taken the test yet the places around here are closed so I posted here.

As sad as it sounds I don't want a divorce I still want the family I started. She has already agreed to some requirements I was advised to come up with for her to regain my trust and so I can feel comfortable in my marriage again.

She would feel the same way I feel now if I had and A and she sees that everyday since she's told me. I also see where all the fights and arguments this past year have originated from

I'm sry for posting more than one thread

Yes this is true and I know that now it had completely slipped my mind these past couple of days that I used to do that, as soon as she told me why I started taking full responsibility of what is going on

And I just talked to her she says there were times when she told him she just wanted to go home, but then again his family knew she was sleeping with him and that the child could be his, is this there family's word against hers?

Re: Paternity test questions

You will need to check the laws in your state.

In most states, a woman’s husband is considered the legal father to any children born and/or conceived during their marriage. My understanding is that this guy would have no legal standing to try to get legally recognized as the father of this child since you are married to the mother of the child.

If you want to know if you are the actual biological father of the child, you can get a DNA paternity test at any drug store. They are not very expensive. Get the test run and find out.

And why is this creep around your child at all?

Now about you. You actually used to tell you wife that you were cheating? Well I guess she believed you. About 50% of all betrayed spouses end up having what are called revenge affairs.

After you telling her that, how can you even prove to her that you did not cheat?

Are you considering reconciliation with your wife?

You aren't a lawyer and you are not a police officer, it isn't your call to make. Let them tell you guys the laws, statuettes, charges or whatever that can or cannot be pursued. I mean now she is implying kidnapping.

Re: Paternity test questions

@DreadHeadHusband

A lot of people here are going to push you to divorce your wife. You need to decide for yourself what you want to do with your marriage. About 75% of marriage recover from infidelity and go on the do just fine.

Here are some books that can really help you and your wife recover your marriage if that is the route you want to go.

So, are you letting her read this thread as you respond? I mean she sure is giving you some instant responses and you are coming back pretty dang quick.

Don't worry, many people will show up and push you to reconcile. Take the time to make sure whichever decision you choose to make is right for you.

Know she is sitting on the end of the bed while I'm asking her more questions and on my phone

I was taking the time to consider what to do but now knowing my child may not be mine has me focused on insuring I can't lose any kind of parent rights if the child isnt mine
