Default B.C. woman who concealed her ex-husband was not father of her son loses child support

B.C. woman who concealed her ex-husband was not the father of her son loses child support bid | National Post

The couple were living in Ontario prior to the divorce but after the September 2014 divorce, the wife moved to B.C., apparently to start a new life with a local man she had met on the Internet.

At the divorce hearing, she admitted that her husband was not the child’s biological father and sought no child support, with the Ontario judge warning them that paternity was not necessarily determinative of child support obligations.

After the woman moved to B.C., the husband heard nothing more from her until February 2016, when she filed for child support through the B.C. courts.
“I doubt it could truly be said, given D’s tender years and the brevity of the connection between them, that the child formed any durable expectations of the respondent.”

The judge, who noted that there was no evidence of who the real father was, concluded that while the husband had stood in as a parent, the “whole thing was based on a serious and fundamental misapprehension of fact.”

It would not be in “the least bit fair” to order the husband to bear full responsibility for supporting the child, said Baird.
