Good Day, my husband and I are together for 10 years and married for 5 years. Suddenly this lady brings to our attention that her 8 years old son has been fathered by my husband through a one night stand. My husband has noted that he did sleep with her but is unsure of the paternity of the child been his. I have questioned the lady as to why she waited 8 yrs to come clean and she couldn't explain as to why but noted she wants nothing to do with us or any money. Recently she has since called demanding for money etc. Am I right by saying SHE should arrange for paternity to be done and then maintenance thereafter ?
