Do I Have To Pay Child Support If My Wife Divorces Me While She’s Pregnant?

You may end up financially responsible for child support for the next 21 years if your wife divorces you while she’s pregnant.

It’s a settled matter of law that a husband is the legal father of any child resulting from the marriage.

This concept is as old as marriage itself, and in your situation, unless a paternity test reveals otherwise very soon, the court may determine that you are the father and have all the obligations of fatherhood.

We’ll fight back and insist that your spouse prove paternity, and if the child isn’t yours, we’ll work to ensure that you are free from the obligation to support her child.

It’s very important to your financial future that you get good representation for your divorce action right away.
