Military Male Abuse revealed by DNA paternity tests

An astonishing trap inside of family law devastates military men, their own children and the women who love them. These men of honor never see the trap until the door closes behind him, then it is too late.

Some would say that military men are protected by the Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act (SSRA). Not true, at best it is a great theory, but not actual practice.

Carnell Smith has found or met victims in the Navy, Marines, Army, Air Force, Coast Goard and National Guard.

What is the trap that ensnares so many military men? The answer of course is paternity fraud. Checkout the article written by Glen Sacks and Jeffrey Leving

Another family law problem for military fathers is paternity fraud. According to Carnell Smith, Executive Director of the National Family Justice Association, deployed soldiers are often “targeted and preyed upon” by unscrupulous

The next time you hear a military man say “I’m getting married because she said “I’m pregnant and you’re the father”. Yell “DANGER, WARNING” — trust but verify by DNA test.

Encourage him to read this blog post, count to ten, see the videos on and say the wedding is contingent upon legal DNA paternity test results of 99.99% or higher. And if proven as the biological father — attend and graduate from premarital counseling then wedding.

What if the DNA results are zero percent? Can you say dodged a bullet!

Rumor has it that military marriages entered in the “heat of the moment” can yield 18 – 21 years of regret plus your military pension.

Or worse, did you hear about the officer who learned that 3 of 3 kids not his from his now ex-wife. And each kid was fathered by a different man. The Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) and the California courts have ordered the defrauded officer to pay child support with no parenting time or visitation.

Yes, California and Texas hold to the archaic belief that any child born during the marriage is automatically the husband’s child even if legal DNA paternity testing shows zero percent paternity. Truth is not required in family court as shown here.

Where’s the protection by the Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act (SSRA) for married and single military men under California orders? Not applicable since California supports the uniform parentage act (UPA) and does not allow married or divorced men to challenge paternity after the child’s second birthday.

Seems a bit hypocritical when the child’s mother is not required by law to make a truthful paternity affidavit before the child’s second birthday. For more information, see

    Your right men shouldn’t be stuck with children do to deceiving woman. There are other sides to stories.

    I have a 3 year old child. Her father is a reservist in the marines. I have not seen him since I was 6 weeks pregnant. I have been unable to serve him for paternity test for 3 years. I have tried every thing. I have filled papers myself and through the government. He knows their after him for child support so he frequently changes jobs and refuses to answer the door. I have tried serving him on base, this doesn’t work either. They will not let someone on to serve him. I tried hiring the sheriffs but they don’t serve on weekends. Also DES (department of economical security) is getting the run around from the marines to. I have even contacted the sergeants and any high level personnel’s number I can get my hands on. I get the same response, DES needs to write to use in person. DES is aware of this and has sent documentation to the base, only for them to say they never received it. They have been giving me the run around for 3 years. I can’t afford a high price lawyer to defend me.

    It makes me made that they are allowing him to hide. They should hand him over. How can they protect the United States and not hold there own men reasonable when they don’t uphold the law. My child has rights even though the two of use were never married. The military seems to forget this!

    Hi Stacey,

    I appreciate your response to truth-in-paternity for men, women and kids.

    For your situation, did you know that it is possible to open a case with your local child support enforcement agency?

    The cost of the service is or was $25. The application fee can be waived for low income parents, too.

    If I were in your situation as a custodial parent, I would be filing today with a demand for a “monitored DNA paternity test”.

    I agree that children of unwed parents should be supported (physical, emotional, spiritual and financial) by both biological or formally adopted parents.

    Sometimes there are evasive parents that require the firm approach to become fiscally responsible.

    You may write me at director(at) if you want more information about another low cost option.

    Mr. Smith, this article is all too true. I am active duty, and the amount of men paying child support for children that are not biologically theirs is disgusting. As a woman, I am ashamed of other women who continue to demand money from men they tricked and lied to. But as Stacey pointed out, it does go both ways, we do need better support from commanders to enforce paternity issues, but we also need better laws to protect those of us who serve from being trapped into the financial responsiblity of supporting children who do not belong to them.

    My soon to be ex wife is active duty army and we have a 2 year old son and I have reason to believe that I may not be the father how would I go about getting a paternity test and if the results come back as negative how would I go about getting her cheating ass charged with adultery and ruin her military career.

    Hello Oscar,

    I hope that you are not one of the Paternity Fraud members like us.
    It could be smart to verify the truth about paternity before the divorce
    is finalized. It is much harder to fight a paternity fraud case after the
    divorce is final, depending on which state has jurisdiction.

    I offer consulting services and I know the DNA testing business from
    operating a legal DNA service for 10 years. If you want to use my
    expertise to your advantage, contact me through
    with your number for callback.

    Best Regards,
