I'm totally stealing this from another board.

I would think that Amanda would have to prove that the baby is Bobs. I think you can do this with a close relative to Bob... (brother?) If it comes back stating that most likely Bob was the father, then the baby would be entitled to Social Security benefits.
Jane has no obligation to the mistress or the baby: she didn't create it and she didn't ____ Amanda.
Honestly nothing. The kid is entitled to SS but that's it.
I wouldn't give money to her period..Hell no!! If it was me in that situation, theres no way in Hell I'd give her a penny. Id tell her its not my problem, she can figure it out. Sorry but if it was my SO having an affair I just wouldn't give a crap what happens to her. It would not be my moral obligation to support a woman my SO would have been having an affair with and then got pregnant.
