A 2004 paternity order required the father to pay $500 a month child support through the SDU and he clearly had made no payments to the SDU prior to April 2010. So, how did the mother lose this enforcement suit? The father testified that his signature on the “agreed” paternity order was forged and he testified he did not know he was ordered to pay through the SDU. The father testified that the mother had agreed for him to pay support through direct deposit into her bank account or by use of his debit card. The father introduced evidence of these deposits. The mother should count herself lucky she was not sanctioned for bringing this enforcement action.
In the Interest of K.S.H.U., No. 05-12-00448-Cv (Tex. App. – Dallas 5/21/2013).
