My husband got this women pregnant. My husband is self employed/and here in the US ilegally. We have children together and have been married for over 5 years. His mistress threatned to file support, once he made it clear to her that he had no intentions of divorcing me. Can my husbands mistress file child support, against me?
She can file for support against your husband. The assets and income that are exposed are another issue. As a practical matter, it will effect your finances no matter what. Sometimes a post nuptial agreement in these circumstances may help.
Against you personally? No, she cannot. The obligation to support the child lies with the biological parents of the child to be supported.
