Forcing step parents to take on financial responsibility
So this is a take off of the other post about a man marrying a woman and taking on her kid. I think it was posted by secret. Some people felt because a kid calls the man dad and he supports the household he should be financially responsible for the stepkid because bm never sought child support. So what happens when they divorce? For those who felt he took on the kid, is he now financially responsible for a kid he didn't make or is it okay to now get child support from real daddy? What happens when bm remarries and the new guy doesn't want the old guy involved? Does he have to pay and have no rights because he isn't the dad? I'm just curious and wanted to see what people who felt that way thought. I'm at work so I can't respond till tonight.
