Good day. I have been legaly married for 6 years. my husband and has been together since 1996 and it was 2006 that we decided to do it legaly. just this year i have learned that my husband has a daughter with abroad. And the child was born 2 mos before we got married. He kept it as secret to me. His familyknew about it. He told me he kept it as a secret because he was scared i would back out of out wedding. I never knew that he has a daughter. The mother of the child is asking for financial assitance( and im ok with it) but the thing i am not ok is that she want me to accept and recognize her daughter as part of my family and to be recognized by my son as well. And i definately dont want that. Is there anything I can do legally? to my husband and the other girl? I really dont want my son to be involve in these both of use was trick to this situation.

i really need you help.

thanks

technically we cannot say that your husband committed any crime, because at that time you were still not yet married. If your husband signed on the birth certificate of the child as his acknowledgment, then the mother has the right to ask for financial support. Otherwise your hubby can refuse. And she cannot oblige you to accept the child as your own.

This is just my personal opinion. Let us wait for the reply of atty, he have better knowledge about the matter. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

you don't have to do anything aside from provide support to the child, and actually only your husband has that obligation.
