Man misled over paternity

A man has been awarded damages of £25,000 after being tricked by his ex-wife into believing that he was the father of her two children, reports the Daily Mail.

The couple married in 1990, and the first child was born in 1992, followed by the second child in 1994. The couple divorced in 2004, and Richard Rodwell paid child maintenance after his ex-wife was awarded custody of the two children.

Mr Rodwell requested DNA tests in 2008 after rumours surfaced about the children’s paternity. The tests proved that the children had different fathers, neither of which was him.

Mr Rodwell sued his ex-wife for deceit, and was awarded £12,500 compensation for each child, plus costs of £25,000.
