EXPENDABLE CHILDREN: DEFINING BELONGING IN A BROKEN WORLD

THERESA GLENNON

This commentary provides a brief background on some of the circumstances in which states currently provide conflicting and often unsatisfying resolutions regarding paternity, and thus responsibility for children born during the marriage or cohabitation of a couple. Second, it describes the Principles‘ efforts to address the inconsistencies and inadequacies of state paternity laws by adopting the concept of estoppel to deny parental support obligation. Finally, this commentary offers a critical evaluation of these efforts. While some aspects of the estoppel to deny a child support obligation are important steps forward, other aspects do not adequately resolve the most troubling situations that currently arise in the child support context when biological paternity comes into dispute.

Coble v. Green-

Because a court determination that a man is the

equitable father of a child is mutually exclusive of a determination that the child was born out of

wedlock, an equitable parentage order precludes the mother from having standing to assert a

paternity action regarding that child.
