I know this might be a little different- but I became a member of this site to help my boyfriend. About a year and a half ago he was date raped (this is before we started dating) and the girl who raped him got pregnant. She called him the other day, claiming that it is his baby and that he needs to take a DNA test to prove it. However, I was wondering if there was anything he can do about it, is it too late to go through court claiming rape? I'm one of the only people who know that he was raped- he grew up in a "men don't show feelings" type of family- and he doesn't want to seem weak by admitting that he was raped. But if it is rape does he still have to pay child support? He's only a freshman in college... I don't know how to help him. I could really really use some advice on how to help him cope with all of these feelings. Any advice? Thanks alot.

vmarie 13,

That is very difficult. Men are raped by women and they do keep silent, however, as with any rape case the longer a person takes to report it, the more difficult, if not impossible it becomes to prosecute it, which is especially true for adults.

As for the child support aspect, if it's his child then yes, he is obligated to pay child support, which is the right of the child, not the parent. The child didn't do anything wrong, no matter how it came to be.

ROCK ON........Trish
