Further to your response at 3 above. Can the fact that the woman moved in with my son in his house and he paid all the utility bills and food for a period of two year for her, her three sons and the (disputed) daughter be classed as "financial loss"? He only asked her to move in because she said the daughter was his.
He then bought her a ring - by way of an engagement ring - which she subsequently took when she moved out but he had never formally asked her to marry him,and she never agreed to marry him as she was never officially divorced. She moved out whilst he was working abroad and took the ring with her - can this be classed as theft?
To summarise therefore would you recommend:
a. Action for declaratory of paternity.
b. Sue for loss/damages ie utilities and ring.
In your opinion would the above stand any chance in court - is it worth pursuing?
