After learning that he is not the father of their 8-year old son, this man took the matter to High court where he requested compensation for the emotional distress caused to him and has demanded his wife to pay “every penny” he has spent on the child over the years.
A man has decided to sue his estranged wife for every penny he has spent on their 8-year old son, after learning that he is not the real father of the kid. The man has taken the matter to the High Court.
The name of the real father has not been revealed yet. Justice Cohen said that the boy must not be told about the situation “until the time was right”, and he added that a social worker would give advice and decide when the boy should be given the information.
The husband wants compensation for emotional distress and wants the law to help him settle the matter.
Following the latest round of litigation at private hearings in the Family Division of the High Court in London, the judge outlined his decision in a written ruling and said that no-one involved in the case could be named in media reports. The man and wife even argued in the court whether the boy should be told the truth about his real father. The man thought he should know while the woman was strictly against the move.
The judge said that the man had been devastated to learn that his son was not his, and he launched a “raft” of litigation.
