In too many cases, Texas fathers end up paying child support on other men's children AND DON'T KNOW IT! Often the mother involved DOES know that the child or children are not the children of her husband, but she claims that they are his children because she is mad at him and she likes the children's father. This is fraud. When she makes that claim to a court in a divorce or a child support action, she is committing perjury. She may claim to be doing it "for the children". A crime committed "for the children" is still a crime.

So, what can we do about it?

Preventing Fraud

  • If you are a man involved in a divorce action or a child support action, insist on a paternity test.
  • If you are a mother, resist temptation. Refuse to be part of the problem. Name the real father. You don't need the pressure of committing a felony (fraud, perjury), and, in a day when so many medical situations have genetic roots, your child deserves to know his or her genetic ancestry.
  • If you are an attorney on either side of a divorce action or a child support action, insist on a paternity test. If you are the mother's attorney, protect your client. Don't let her commit fraud or perjury.
  • If you are a Family Court judge, always order paternity testing (except in the case of adopted children or children from a prior marriage).
  • If you have been victimized, demand restitution.
  • Write your Texas Senator, your Texas Representative, the Governor, and the Texas Attorney General. Express your views. Ask for legislation to require paternity testing in divorce and child support cases. Ask for legislation to facilitate restitution in paternity and child support fraud cases.
  • Educate others about the nature and size of the problem.
