My significant other is a gentle, kind, and decent man and these virtues have led him into a ludicrous mess. He married a woman in Detroit who had a half-black child, the result of her union with 3 different black men.(She is unsure which is the real father.)

When asked by his wife, my significant other was kind enough to give the child his name upon entry into school at age 6. Because of the woman's repeated cheating, my significant other divorced this woman. She immediately quit working and filed for child support. My significant other paid it for several years.

Then the woman went into 1 county court in Michigan and testified under oath and provided a notarized statement that my significant other was indeed NOT the father and that she had named him because she couldn't find the real father.

My significant other took a DNA test proving that he is not the blood parent. The court accepted this and released him from his obligation. HOWEVER, this woman knows how to play the Michigan game. She moves to a new county and files for payments there. The whole process continues. To date, my significant other has been arrested and jailed for this and has had to appear in several different courts and has taken 3 different DNA tests for which he has to pay. Every time this woman does not want to work, she does this and gets away with it.

When does the foolishness stop. Why can't what 1 county accepted stand up throughout the state of Michigan, nay, the whole country? She has testified and documented the fact that this is not the real father and she has no hopes of finding said real blood parent.

When are the courts going to see her for what she is: someone playing the system so that she does not have to work? My significant other is a good man but he should not be made to pay for someone else's child simply because the real parent cannot be found and he is a findable body. This child is now 12 and we have been going through this for 6 years. We have 6 more to go before she is 18.

Can someone please make it stop. We are trying to hold up against this but it is disruptive to our lives and I would like to live without the threat of this woman hanging over me all the time. It is ruining my health.

This is not true. Friend of the court will only review child support orders every three years, raise or not and only on request. If however, the payer has a drop in pay, he/she can request a review of the lesser income coming in, in an effort to have it lowered at any time. Some payers don't want to mess with the paper work but all it cost is something like 20 bucks for the friend of the court to look over ones earnings and make adjustments.

Yes, surly this woman is having the support order reviewed every 3 years and there is no fault there with that. Adjustments should be made when they are due.

I've known people that have asked their bosses to hold off on giving them a raise until after the friend of the court does their requested review. That is hardly fair to the child/children but it happens all the time.

In the end, this isn't about who did what. It's about putting food on the table for someone that didn't ask to be here.

AUTHOR: Gail - (U.S.A.)

Hello, your complaints have nothing to do with CPS. These are child support concerns that are handled through the Friend of Court. There is more to the story with the first letter- just because a child uses your name doesnt mean that you are legally responsible for them or financially responsible for them. And, even if someone moves to another county, it doesnt mean that the process starts over again.

The Friend of Court case remains in the original county and if a person moves they have to continue dealing with the original county. It sounds like the ex wife with the bi racial child is moving from county to county and applying for welfare in each county. Just because the woman moves doesnt mean that each county will try to get support from the "alleged father". If your husband did not establish paternity legally on this child, he is not obligated to pay anything for him. In a case like this, the tax payers of Michigan have to pay since there is no known father.

my brother going thru something like this

AUTHOR: Art - (U.S.A.)

My brothers ex-wife left him for another man while they were in Germany. She left with the 2 girls. Then she came back and "dropped them off" and told him she was going out for groceries. She never came back. She found out he was being sent back to the States and she "decided to help him out by taking the girls ahead of time and when he got to the states, they would try to work everything out. He let her take the girls. She moved to Michigan and as soon as he landed and got off the plane, she had him served with divorce papers and custody papers. She gets a huge child support payment each month. They didnt take into consideration that the money he was getting for off base living and he wouldnt be getting that at his new base. THEY didnt care. It was considered income.

Every year when she finds out that he gets a raise due to his rank, she takes him to court for more money. She has her own business but lies to the courts about "how much she pays herself". (Most of it is "under the table")

My new sister in law called the girls to see how they were doing, the ex-wife got on the phone and told her not to call back ever again. Well, my brother is oversees in Afghanistan (spelling) and this how she reacts. Shouldnt she be glad that somebody cares enough to call. She divorced the man she left my brother for, they have a child together and now she has moved onto another man. Be careful,,, she might be coming for someone in Michigan, if so RUN!!!!
