The Fairness of Paternity Fraud

by Diane Dimond

kangaroo courtThere is a lot of unfairness in the world. The American justice system stands ready to counter that, right?

Not so fast.

When it comes to men and allegations of paternity, women have a decidedly upper hand. Whatever the woman claims in court most often becomes fact. And once a court has ruled on paternity and established child support, it can be next to impossible to change — even if a DNA test excludes the man from any possibility of parenthood.

Across the country, men of all ages, colors and social statuses have been ordered by family courts to pay child support for children that aren’t theirs.

In one infamous case in New Mexico, a man shelled out years of support for a daughter who never actually existed. His deceitful ex-wife simply told the court there was such a child, and no proof was ever requested.

Some victims of paternity fraud find out the truth while they are still married. In Michigan, Murray Davis discovered that two of his three children were actually fathered by his best friend. But by that time, the kids were nearly teenagers, well past the legal deadline for Davis to contest paternity in that state.

Carnell Smith, of Atlanta, Georgia, discovered that the daughter he’d been raising with his girlfriend wasn’t his. But the courts didn’t want to hear it. Smith was stuck. Like Davis, this falsely identified “father” began to lobby for changes in his state’s law.

Smith started a group called U.S. Citizens Against Paternity Fraud and got Georgia to join Ohio in being one of only two states that allow an unlimited time for a man to challenge paternity as long as the child support case is open.

Many states require a man to file a challenge before the child’s third birthday. The federal law gives a man just 60 days.

Some men don’t realize what’s happened,” Smith said, “until they are under water with child support payments and then have no money to pay an attorney to fight for them.”

Also working against the wronged man is the Bradley Amendment, a federal law that prohibits state judges from retroactively modifying child support orders.

None of it sounds fair, does it? But it happens all the time. Judicial reasoning ranges from, “it’s in the best interest of the child,” to, “he didn’t challenge the paternity claim immediately.”

Carnell Alexander of Detroit has been under a court-ordered cloud for nearly 30 years.

graft and corruption doctorIn 1987, his ex-girlfriend applied for welfare to support her new baby. She put Alexander’s name down as the father even though he wasn’t. A process server swore he served Alexander with papers demanding he appear in court, so when Alexander didn’t show up, he was declared a “deadbeat dad.”

Truth is, Alexander was never notified. He was in prison at the time on an unrelated charge stemming from a youthful crime. He didn’t find out about his problem until a traffic stop in 1991.

The mother in question now admits, “Everything is my fault.” She told a Detroit TV station, “He shouldn’t have to pay it at all. I want everything to go away for him so he can get on with his life.”

Despite the mother’s lies to the state, despite a definitive DNA test excluding Alexander as the father, he still owes $30,000 in support for, as he puts it, “A child that I did not father … that I was not involved in raising.” He adds, “It is not fair.”

There’s that phrase again. It is not fair.

baby moneyMurray Davis, who established the National Family Justice Association after his painful experience, says Alexander, “Is only one among tens of thousands in this state and possibly hundreds of thousands or millions around the nation who are victims of this abhorrent crime of paternity fraud.”

Fair seems rare in these cases, but a creative-thinking judge in Virginia found a way around that pesky Bradley Amendment. He ruled that a defrauded man who still legally owed $23,000 in back child support could pay it off at a rate of one dollar a year — for 1, 917 years! You gotta love that.

This kind of fraud happens to young men going off to college, to soldiers going overseas, to men of all ages and occupations. And it ruins lives. Biological children of the falsely identified, new wives, grandparents and others are all profoundly affected by paternity fraud.

Having the best interest of a child in mind is knowing the child’s lineage and medical history. The best interest of society is to have a respected family court that is fair to all.

DNA tests cost about $30 these days. It’s time for automatic court-ordered DNA testing in all child-support cases.

The Kangaroo Court Says…

by Moody Jim Rathbone
So many children, so many fathers.

So many children, so many fathers.

‘In a situation wherein a child is not acknowledged by the father, a mother can still claim child support. If oral and written demands to provide support fail, the mother, for and in behalf of her child, may file a case in court.’ – Maria Dee A. Seares-Del Rosario

Or, she can keep her legs closed. Or, she can prove that the child actually belongs to ‘dad.’ In more kangaroo courts across the US, proof of paternity is being required, regardless of marital status. That should be a minimum standard.

baby moneyMany women are only too happy to set up a man for life if they can. Even during marriage, paternity is hardly assured, unless you live in a state like Texas. (Don’t make that mistake.) Corporate states are not interested in truth, but in collecting child support so that they can be paid again by the Feds. That is the current reality for most.

The kangaroo court says that a case for ‘compulsory recognition’ with support may be filed in court with the executive administrator, often mistaken for a ‘judge.’  It is often said that ‘it must first be proven that the child is the father’s illegitimate child. Once the relationship is established, then child support can be demanded from the father’ with rights of inheritance. This assumes, of course, that there is anything left after the kangaroo court gets hold of the ‘father.’

Working against the wronged man is the Bradley Amendment, a federal law that prohibits a kangaroo court from retroactively modifying child support orders for any purpose.

Father, do not claim a child until or unless a paternity test is done. Oh, and learn to keep your pants zipped up. Do not adopt a child that is not yours unless you want to support that child forever. Do not accept a child as yours without a test, even during marriage. Keep in mind that you can never trust a woman where a child is concerned. Many men have been taken down by a system where a prostitute is considered in the ‘moral light’ of a virgin. Morals and ethics are merely studies by lawmakers. Don’t confuse them with religion or ‘God.’ Refuse to consent to slavery. You may have civil or human rights, but you won’t when you give them away.

Paternity Fraud and the Law

dna-paternityIt’s a sad sight in society when a man must ask if a child is his. This reflects on both the plight of men and women. Yet, more and more, that is exactly the question that must be asked because of rampant infidelity and the outright moral collapse of the nation and perhaps the modern world.  This sad morality has become the norm.

Naturally, when confronted by the reality of feminine moral ownership, the little woman typically takes the easy way out.  How would some women know anyway in many cases? The man believes her, often because of his lack of moral ownership or naivety.  He pays to support the child, often taking the child as his own and later finds out the child isn’t his seed, sometimes after years of marriage and a bitter divorce that just as often involves maternal infidelity. To make matters worse, children are commonly stripped from their real or provisional fathers to satisfy the maternal lust for power and control. In many  states, after two years, the man is stuck with paternity whether true or false. The Bradley Amendment guarantees that legal corruption of reality. As a result, a man is often legally obligated to support the child of another man without recourse of any kind.

dad-slavery-2What is worse, Americans have come to accept the fact that this nation no longer operates by the Constitutional Law that the nation was founded on in favor of the ‘myth of legal precedence’. ‘Who cares as long as life is good for me?’ is the chief attitude across the board, extending into the realm of politics.

UNICEF and liberal interpretation has further muddied the waters as politicians seek to work compassion in their personal favor. Federal legislation in family law commonly tramples on the rights of Americans and prevents correction of law that flies in the face of Constitutional Rights of now civilly-impaired citizens. As a result, America has a new subclass of adult Americans in the name of mock moral outrage.

While this legal situation in America might make a great case for abstinence, in the married realm and in a perfect world, such legislation should be unnecessary. I don’t need to tell you that we don’t live in a perfect world: far from it. The American Association of Blood Banks notes a 30% false paternity rate.

paternity-testing1Paternity fraud is one example where laws must change for the better where balance is concerned.  As it stands, in many states, a man named as the father must contest paternity within a statutory period of time whether he has any reason to doubt his paternity or not.  Every man involved in a divorce and every single man that may have fathered a child needs to have DNA testing for each child.  As I said, this is a great case for abstinence and certainly a better case for decent and fair law that complies with Constitutional Rights since a man cannot trust the woman he loves in modern America.

Unfortunately, the U.S. government is empowered by single women, the welfare state, support collection and family tax law through social engineering and architecture. It is time to get serious. Petition your representatives and state legislatures to enact laws allowing men to file suit to establish paternity when they come to know or discover that a child is not theirs. Currently, the federal Bradley Amendment abolishes this possibility, thus violating the states’ rights as well as civil and human rights across the board: all in the name of money and political power. Congress won’t even correct the blight against the nation’s military men in service to the country. You can change that. Do you care or does the nation face moral oblivion?
