Before a join the military I had a fling. The women at the time was 5 years my senior she became pregnant with twins. I began to pay child support which she refused to cash it was all done through the court system. When I explain to her that I was not intrested in getting married because I was only 18 at the time and not ready but wanted to help support and be a father to my children. She was not happy and did everything she could to try and keep me away. Being away 6 months out of the year made it harder. When the children were about 5 I found out from a family friend that the system was gonna take the kids away from her for being unfit. I took leave flee back home got a lawyer and went to court to try and get the children. After paying almost 2 grand in lawyer fees the courts said because I was in the navy and was out to sea so often I was not fit to be a parent to my children to make matters worse the grandmother who was fighting against me had submitted papers to have my rights as a patent taken away. The courts not only told me I could not raise my children because I served my country but that all my rights were taken away. I would not have any say or be able to visit them as I did when I was in town. Here it is 8 years later Im married and have a baby boy and have moved on with my life, a fame member back home informed me that the grandmother is going around telling people she is taking me for child support because she feel it's not right that I'm raising my child and living happy. my question is can I be made to pay this same person who had my rights taken away child support ??
