On today’s Powertalk w/ Lorraine Jacques White, Attys. Janice & Daveda Mathis brought up a rousing debate on whether or not men have to claim their children and pay child support! Confused? Here’s the explanation…
Apparently, the option/rule/vote (whatever you want to call it) is on the table to give men an “out” when it comes to paying child support. If a man and a woman have a child together, and the man claims that he never consented to having that child with her, then he should not be responsible for financially and/or emotionally raising that child… but how would that man try to prove that he actually said “NO”?
Take a listen as Janice & Daveda break down the argument:
