Men should be able to sue for damages if they were tricked into paying child support for a baby that's not theirs

I find it abhorrent that anyone would ever have to pay child support for a child that's not theirs, but I also understand that the child's needs come first and that the payments are in the child's best interest.

My proposed solution is that, once the child reaches 18, the father can provide evidence that the child is not his (usually through a DNA test) and sue the mother for all the payments he made. That way, the child still gets a fair start in life, but the burden of financing that ultimately falls on the party who lied/cheated.
