Fathered a child overseas? Some Australian men while traveling overseas impregnate the local women and then do a runner - either intentionally or unintentionally. A parent can be required to pay child support where that parent is in Australia and the child and its other parent are overseas. Australia has reciprocal agreements with a large number of countries. http://www.humanservices.gov.au/cus...jurisdictions-and-residency-for-child-support In any event, the child would also be entitled to your estate in full or in part should you die with a will or without a will. Evidence may be an issue though, but these days DNA tests are becoming cheaper and more common. Legal Tip - wear a condom!
