Devoted ‘father’ deceived for years until DNA tests revealed the truth
I saw this article and it saddened me. I want to share it on my website blog and hope it inspires fathers everywhere to consult with a Family Attorney if you have a child, even if you think the child is yours.
This article proves that you never know for sure if a child is yours without a DNA test and it bothers me that some men are tricked into believing a child is theirs when the child is not really theirs.
Here is a link to this article and below is my response to this article.
“I would have no problem representing this man whose only mistake was to trust the wrong person. In my years of practicing Family Law in Orange City Florida I have actually encountered similar situations but those Clients did not want to take similar legal action. Upon receiving scientific proof of similar deception, my office would work hard at seeking justice for such selfish behavior.
Much more common is where men are deceived by mother’s seeking to undermine a man’s right to be a father to his children. Fatherhood can be as fulfilling as Motherhood, but often Men are systematically discouraged and/or alienated in order to discourage Father / Child bonding. This is common, and it is most done by mother’s who crave control. I have advice for any Father who wishes to be treated as an equal, and who wants to get the most out of parenting.
Any Father who even considers calling a lawyer in furtherance of his parental rights is not in a relationship that is built on trust, consideration and respect. These Father’s must act quickly to establish their parental rights. Delay often results in Children being manipulated to the point where the damage is hard to undue.”
