WHO’S YOUR DADDY?

As reported in US Weekly’s February 25, 2013 edition, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a baby although Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries has not yet been dissolved. Who will be the baby’s legal father? In Louisiana, Kris would be presumed to be the father because he is the husband of the mother. However, he could disavow its paternity “by clear and convincing evidence” if he filed his lawsuit within one year of the child’s birth. If you are uncertain whether a child born of your marriage is yours, seek legal advice before its first birthday or you are “Daddy” whether you like it or not.
