Wife Is Pregnant During Divorce With Another Man’s Child

divorce lawyer Alex DurstQuestion:

How can I prove that my wife is pregnant with another man’s baby during our divorce trial?

I do not want to pay child support for a child that is not mine.


I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Ohio divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.

Your question asked if you can make your wife prove that she is pregnant in a divorce trial because you want to be sure that you do not end up paying child support unless your wife is truly pregnant with your child.

The proper procedure for someone in your position would be to request that the court establish paternity before ordering child support for the unborn child.

Where I practice, it is generally not possible to obtain a divorce until after any child conceived during the marriage has been born, as the wife is required to state under oath that she is not pregnant.
