Paternity Fraud almost killed a Georgia tax payer's way of life until it was
discovered by a legal DNA paternity test! The OFFICIAL CODE OF GEORGIA does not address certain cases of Paternity
Fraud nor provide automatic restitution for individual victims.
Currently the OFFICIAL CODE OF GEORGIA, allows a mother to commit paternity fraud and
child support fraud against an alleged father, walk away with the money then pursue child support
against the real biological father. A legally sanctioned double-dip $$!!
If a mother commits similar fraud against public (social security, medicaid, welfare, Temporary
Assistance to Needy Families -TANF) and private agencies, the OFFICIAL CODE OF GEORGIA provides for
restitution and punishment up to and including criminal charges.
We should not have a protected class of legalized
extortion against Georgia citizens. The Georgia Court of Appeals appears to agree in SMITH v. DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN
RESOURCES, A97A0257., May 16, 1997, Decided, "While it is the
policy of this state to require fathers to support their minor children, it is not the policy to extort such
support from persons who are not in fact the fathers."
Major points to consider:
Could a child’s life could be at risk for medical needs, when alleged father does not match
genetics in an emergency room? There just might not be enough time!
In 2000, OH passed a law to relieve paternity fraud victims from child support and arrears when
genetic tests proved non-paternity. In 2000, MD Supreme Court upheld similar ruling to relieve paternity
fraud victims using paternity testing. Cases exist for other states in AL, FL, IN, WI, AK, TN, NV, CT, VA, KY
Don’t forget that the mother always knows about her other intimate relations and then
always makes a conscious decision to suppress that information from the alleged father.
