    Default Can You Sue Your Wife for Lying About Paternity

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Nevada

    Can a man sue an ex-wife for having raised children that were not his? He was never made aware of her cheating during the marriage, therefore he never suspected the children not being his. Furthermore, the ex-wife abandoned the family and left him to raise all of them by himself and she refused to provide for them. She filed for a divorce but never confessed as to the children's biological origins. Shortly after the custody (which was set at 50/50) she stopped collecting the children and left them with him full-time. He did it under the belief that they were his, and would have not done so otherwise. He didn't come across the truth until after all the children were legally 18.

    No, there is nothing he can do now. It's too late.

    Anyone can sue anyone for anything. Such a lawsuit would not succeed and would be dismissed almost immediately.

    How do you know the ex-wife knew the children were not also her husband's children? The only way she could know that would be if (1) she did DNA testing or (2) she did not have sex with her husband around the time of the children's dates of conception. Obviously, if #2 were true, then the husband knew as well as the wife did. Did the mother do DNA testing?

    Moreover, if the mother "abandoned the family and left [her husband] to raise [the children] by himself," he could and should have sought child support. If he had done that and his ex-wife didn't pay it, then he could have pursued enforcement of the unpaid child support, and that would be far better than an ordinary civil judgment. Did he seek a child support order? If not, why not?
