Men ordered to pay child support could demand a paternity test under the “duped dads” bill proposed in Colorado.
A Cascade man says he served 58 days in jail after falling behind on child support payments even though a DNA test proved he wasn’t the father of the two children he was required to support.
Currently, a man must show he’s not the father within eight months of the child support order. Some “duped dads” say they didn’t suspect a paternity issue till much later.
You’d think a man who’d raised children as his own would want to support them, but I can’t see requiring child support for someone else’s kids.
