Q: My question involves a family issue from Oklahoma
In Oklahoma, if a man and woman are married, and the wife has a child that turns out not to be the husbands, is he required by law to pay child support for the child that isn't his?
A: If a child is born during the marriage, the husband is considered by law to be the father and will be on the hook to support the child. There is a very specific procedure and specific time limitations to solve this problem. Contact an attorney today, not tomorrow, to review your case.
Brian Boeheim agrees with this answer
A: I agree with Pete. I would emphasize his point that there are very specific time limitations. With that said, the law has changed recently, and fraud can provide you with more time to challenge the Paternity. Get yourself an experienced lawyer and you will possibly save yourself a bundle of money.
