WA father discovers son’s paternity, two years after death

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Western Australian father has shared the devastating moment when he learnt he was not biologically related to his 20-year-old son two years after his death.

Around 23 years ago, Mick Reynolds became a dad after a woman he was seeing, Melissa Hernaman fell pregnant.

During this time he shared custody of Lochie, lived with Ms Hernaman until Lochie was seven and contributed to expenses and paid $400 a week in child support until the child turned 18.

Now 43, Mr Reynolds told A Current Affair he paid Ms Hernaman just under $110,000, something he says he had “no worries” doing.
However, Mr Reynolds’ says his case also highlights the issue of paternity fraud and the lack of emotional and financial support for victims.'
