  I am saddened by the news my son heard today in Wayne Co. mi court house. My grandson was taken by his mom 8months ago, she resides in redford somewhere we are not sure. It pains us everyday, because we were getting him and then he is gone. The court informed my son today that she is still married from 7 yrs ago. She and that dad had 2 children that were taken from them 7yrs ago, she met my son 3yrs ago had a sweet boy named Korbyn. We just found out that she had another baby in Nov. from another man ,AND she is still married!!! Can't wait for his surprise! We were told because she is married my son has no legal bonds to Korb. the man who was married to her SEVEN yrs ago does. OMGOSH can this be true?!!!! pure devastation.And where do we start?

  Ages since I have posted here. We met ages ago at Baby Center.

I'm taking a second look at the wording here...
”—the Michigan Supreme Court has interpreted this language to require a court determination that the child is not the issue of the marriage prior to the putative father filing his complaint seeking paternity.

How can this be possible? This would mean, each and every child born within a marriage would require dna testing prior to a childs birth to ensure the child is actually a product of the marriage. Certainly the courts could not force amniocentisis (sp?) to ensure dna matches the father.

What about cases of rape, where a married couple may choose not to abort a child concevied within a marriage but was a product of rape. Would the courts then grant paternal rights to the rapist?

This law, as interpreted excludes any and all possibility of a father in similiar circumstances to yours from establishing his rights.

Have there been any updates on the changes in legislations proposed awhile back?

have never stopped thinking about this case from time to time.

  I am on the other side of this story. I have been separated from my husband for a year now and my divorce was about to be final when, I became pregnant with another mans baby. Now this other man is trying to bail out because “technically” the baby is not his by law because I am still married. Now I can’t get divorced until there is a DNA test. So I am told. I do not understand why the law is making it so difficult for my unborn child to have his real father be on the birth certificate, be in the hospital room, and legally not the father. I would like someone to help me and figure out how we can change this law. And what if the mother wants the real father in the Childs life? Is the law different then? Can the real father be asked to pay child support and have a DNA test to prove the child is his? How long does this take? Or when my soon to be ex-husband takes the DNA test and proves the baby is not his... Then what? The baby won't have a father? How does this work? How can some men want to be a part of their Childs life and others not? Why is it that men like Bill Numerick Jr who want to be apart of his biological son be denied. And why is it that women have to be left with no one to care for their child once paternity is proven that the Husband is not the father? If anyone has any information can you pease help me???... Contact me at [email protected]

Also, if you have Bill N. contact information can you please send it to me????

  Please see House Bill No. 5993. April 16, 2008. introduced by Mike Simpson. to amend the the Acknowledgement of Parentage Act. written to allow a man who is shown by blood or genetic testing to be the biological father of the child legal standing to contest the parenting acknowledgement. I'm not certain where this bill stands, or if it would in fact help your case, but it's worth investigating.

  I am truely sorry for what has happened to you. In no way can I relate, except for the fact that your story touched my heart and made me cry. I am a single mother of a 4yr have been since he was 2 1/2. All I wanted to do was raise my son with my ex-husband. Try the do it together thing after the divorce.But he had other plans after 8 months of barely even seeing his son he decided that he didn't want to see him anymore. And was considering terminating his rights away. When the divorce papers were made he gave me full custody just like that. He's not seen his son in a 1 1/2, and I have bit my tongue till it bleeds not blessing him out in front of my son. Because one day it will be my son's choose of what he thinks about his father. I will not lead him down that road. My point, my son still crys, still misses, and still wants his Dad even after all he's done to him. My ex-husband remarried 8 days after the divorce, and is now expecting a new baby in Nov.

I wish there were more Dads out there like you. Please never give up, never quit because they are always worth it. The reason I found this site was I typed "I Love my Son." I won't forget you as long as you never forget your Son.

  I have a very similar situation to the man who posted just prior to me, only I have a letter written by my son's mom that says I am my son's biological father AND I know her husband is sterile, since when I first met her she was going to Grand Rapids for artificial insemination treatments.

We came together as friends, fell in what I thought was love, she moved out of her husbands house and then once she became pregnant, poof, she was gone. We remained friends and still are, but her husband is now claiming my son as his, even though he openly doesn't deny that I am the biological father.

There is a sense of pride on his part in knowing I have NO rights under the law as it stands today.

I don't know what to do at this point, but I feel for all of the men suffering through this.

I am trying to make an appointment to talk with their Pastor, based on the advice of a friend who is also a Pastor. I hope God will provide a way for my son to know his real Father.

If anyone thinks I have hope, please feel free to write me and give me an idea what to do.

Peace to you,
