How can I stop paying child support after finding out the child is not mine?
Once a child support order is in place, you have to continue to pay child support until a court orders that you no longer have to. One of the ways to do that is to file a suit for disestablishment of paternity.
My law firm’s been involved in a number of those. With DNA testing today, it’s becoming much easier than in the old days, but the first step would be to make sure that the child is not yours, and then hire a firm who knows how to get into court and to bring these issues before the court. And remember, the child support continues to be coming due until a court says that it’s no longer due.
