    I wouldn't say so. I'd say it equal on both the parents parts. The real victims are the children and always will be.
    Or in the case of some US states, men and children are the victims.

    It's bizarrely hard to find information on this online.

    I want to know about the legality of paternity testing. In France you need a court order - and if you try to get a paternity test done through unofficial means, they can throw your ass in jail.

    What about elsewhere in the world?

    This is 100% true, in the US if you are married to a women and she cheats on you with another man having his baby; then you WILL have to pay child support. If you don't you will be locked up for a couple of years till you pay it off. Child support is the US is like 30% of your wage as well.

    Welcome to America; don't have kids and don't get married unless you can pay.
