Lecturer Sues Ex-Wife for £100,000 after Being Told IVF Son Is Not His

(The Telegraph) – The man, who is in his 60s, claims to have had no idea that the child had been created with sperm provided by his wife’s former boyfriend and that she only dropped the “bombshell” news when the boy was five. The boy is now nine and the couple have divorced. The woman – who at one stage was earning more than £180,000 a year – says there is “no merit” in the damages claim, which is believed to be the first case of its kind.
