“Speaking from experience?”
Praise God, NO!!!
But the friend of a friend had that happen - he got tricked into supporting someone else’s kid for 2-3 years (not the brightest light). When he FINALLY got a blood/DNA test, he was proclaimed “not the father”. So he went to court and asked for a refund on what he paid to raise the bastard and was essentially told to go f**k himself.
As far as your cousin’s situation goes...WOW!
But at least he doesn’t have the blood on his hands.
Hmm but was he actually ordered by a court to pay child support or was he just doing it cause she asked and he thought it was his? If the latter I wouldn’t think he would have legal recourse to recover the $$ unless maybe he could prove in court that she knew it wasn’t his and defrauded him, good luck with that.
As for my cousin, I wonder why she even told the poor bastard, mind you this was a while after they broke up and she tells him she was pregnant when they split and she got an abortion.
