A man identified only as “A.S.” of Passaic County, N.J., was sued by the Passaic County Social Services Board for child support when his “romantic partner” identified as “T.M.” had twins, identified him as the father, and applied for public assistance. When T.M. admitted A.S. was not the only man she had sex with that week, the agency ordered a DNA test to establish fatherhood. The test came back showing A.S. was the father of only one of the twins, not both. The judge therefore ruled A.S. would only have to pay support for one of the twins.
