Court: Man must support children

January 16, 2013

An Indiana court says a divorced man must pay child support for a boy and girl his then-wife artificially conceived using sperm from another man. The Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected the Delaware County man's argument that he shouldn't have to pay because the children were not his biological offspring. A friend provided sperm for artificial insemination when the couple was unable to conceive on their own. A judge ruled the kids were children of the marriage and the ex-husband was obligated to support them.
