In too many cases, fathers end up paying child support on other men's children and do not know it. Failing to comply with court mandated child support can result in a jail term, loss of wages, and social stigmas. In many cases, the mother’s of these children know that the men paying child support are not the biological fathers. There are several possible scenarios which may lead a mother to believe her only option is to commit paternity fraud. Perhaps the couple was not married, had a brief sexual relationship, and the mother needs someone to support the child; or the alleged father believes the children are his because they were born when he was in a relationship with the mother; that a wife had an affair that resulted in an illegitimate child, and she does not want the marriage to break; or even after a bitter breakup, a woman claims that the child is his because she is mad at him and wants to get even. Regardless of the situation, this is fraud.

When a woman makes this type of false claim to a court in a divorce or a child support action, she is committing perjury. Fortunately, with the advances and wide availability of scientific technology, it is easy, affordable, and worth the effort to get an accurate paternity test through DNA analysis. Not only is it fair to the alleged father to verify paternity, but also to the child. Parenting is both a financial and emotional obligation, and knowing the truth is in the best interest of all parties involved.

A group which is most vulnerable of such frauds is our military men who proudly and voluntarily serve our country. As America's servicemen are risking their lives to protect their families and our own, they may end up serving a jail term once they return to the United States for failing to financially support a child that is not their own. It does not seem fair that soldiers risking their lives in Iraq might face prison over child support upon return. Our soldiers have a modest salary at best, and often they are unable to pay the impossible financial burdens put upon them for child support. It is disheartening to know that servicemen who risk their lives to protect us will possibly face arrest as soon they step off their plane home. Yet this is precisely what happened after Desert Storm, and it is happening again.

The Christian Science Monitor reports that a soldier whose domestic job pays a $31,000 yearly gross salary must pay $900 a month in child support. His reserve pay will reduce his income to $27,000. The Monitor neglects to point out that even at the higher pay, this is about half the man's take-home pay, and that he is likely to be living on less than $1,000 a month. These complaints of the financial burdens have not gone completely unheard, but the response may not be enough. The federal government has issued a generic PR smokescreen, urging soldiers to contact their local child support agencies to request a modification, but such requests require a long, tedious, and broken process, and are seldom granted in enough time to avoid the consequences of not paying child support.
