Iowa Forcing Man to Pay for Child that is NOT His! INSANITY!

0

Iowa resident Joe Vandusen thought it was a joke!

He received a certified letter from the Iowa Department of Human Resources last month requiring him to pay for another man’s child.

Joe has not had any contact with the child’s mother for almost 2 decades!

He received a certified letter from the Iowa Department of Human Resources last month requiring him to pay for another man's child.

I opened it up and it was child support, for a kid that is not even mine“, he said. “We’ve had no contact whatsoever in 16 or 17  years, and the child just turned one year old

A spokesperson from the Iowa DHR says that by law, Joe is considered the “legal” father of the new child, even though he has not been with the mother in nearly two decades.

They broke up but never got a divorce. Iowa law requires husbands to pay child support for children born during the marriage.

WQAD 8 in Iowa Reports:

“Joe is still legally responsible and the state and its Child Support Recovery Unit, are telling him, he had better pay up.

I explained to her this is not my child. I’m willing to do a paternity test and she flat out told me it does not matter, you’re legally married to her. You’re going to pay child support“, Vandusen said.”

INSANITY!

There are deadbeat dads, real biological fathers, all over Iowa and other states getting away with not paying child support.

Iowa decides it is wise to go after this good guy, who by all accounts is a responsible father to his own children?

Is there not ONE person in the Iowa Child Support Recovery Unit with some common sense?

And DO NOT give me the stupid line that it is LAW!!!! Government entities make decisions ALL THE TIME on where to focus their attention!

Des Moines needs to be taking some action on amending to this law.

Not only is this situation insane, it is taking valuable resources that are needed to go after the real culprits in Iowa who are not paying for their children!

Joe already has two biological children. He is currently helping raise two non-biological children with his girlfriend of five years. This is taking resources from THOSE children!!! AGAIN… INSANE!!

Someone in Iowa needs to get it together!

Joe’s only recourse is to go to court. He has to petition the court to “de-establish” paternity.

As he was recently laid off; he and his family are already struggling.

Joe said the lawyer he contacted wanted a retainer fee of $2,000.

Unless I come up with that magical $2,000 to pay the lawyer, I don’t know what I can do,” he said.
