AUBURN, Maine -- Maine officials are coming after a 35-year-old man who they said owes thousands in back child support for a child that is not his.This happens a lot because of the Bradley Amendment, federal incentives for over-agressive paternity establishment, a lack of penalties against perjuring moms, prejudice against men, and a variety of other evils.
They said Geoffrey Fisher owes about $11,000 in child support to cover the time from the child's birth until paternity tests proved that Fisher was not the father.
They say Fisher failed to file a court motion three years ago that would have relieved him or any financial responsibilities for the child.
But Fisher said he's flabbergasted that the state sent him a letter seeking payment even though DNA tests have proven he isn't the father.
