What do you suppose would happen in this situation between a Mother, and a victim of paternity fraud?

The scenario: A woman lies to a man about being the Father of her child...and he raises the child as his own for several years. At some point, she tells him that he's not the Father, but he decides he still wants to be the child's Father.

A short time after, the woman rekindles her affair with the actual biological father of the child, and she tells the man she defrauded that she no longer wants him in the child's life, and going forward, she wants him to leave the child alone.

What do you suppose would happen if the Mother was determined to keep the man who was led to believe that he was the Father...out of the child's life? Whom do you believe the law would side with and why?

BQ: Do you believe the feminists who are criticizing men who are the victims of paternity fraud and decide to walk away for their lack of humanity...would side with the men who wanted to remain in the child's life...or would they side with a Mother's right to keep the man out of the child's life if that's what the Mother wanted?

    The non-biological father would be pushed out of the child's life. This has happened, in multiple cases.

    Indeed, even when there IS a biological tie, some men through no fault of their own are pushed out of their children's lives by courts that don't give a damn about the children, the father, or the children's right to paternal parenting. Such as these examples:

    I would hope the justice system has the sense to let the poor man be with his children. The woman should be in prison for the fraud anyway. Whether or not they are his biological children, they are still his children because he was the one who took care of them, not that other guy.

    I believe the woman would most likely get her way.

    I think most feminists would side with the woman and say its her right.
