Paternity case arises involving Michael Jordan

There are many different types of family law issues that can arise. One such issue is paternity. Sometimes, the issue of paternity leads to court cases. Paternity cases can involve many complicated issues and how such cases are ultimately resolved can be very impactful on all of the parties involved.

Recently, a celebrity paternity case has arisen. The case involves the famous former NBA player Michael Jordan.

Recently, a woman filed a paternity lawsuit against Jordan. The woman has a 16-year-old son. The woman claims that Jordan is the son's father. In her paternity lawsuit, the woman has asked that Jordan be ordered to take a paternity test. She also has asked that Jordan be ordered to pay child support in regards to the boy.

Jordan has since filed a request asking that the woman's lawsuit be dismissed. Jordan claims that he is not the child's father and that it was established in an earlier case (a divorce case between the woman and her ex-husband) that someone other than Jordan is the father of the child. In addition to asking that the paternity lawsuit be dismissed, Jordan is also asking that sanctions be leveled against the woman.

Many questions come up in connection to this paternity case. What will happen in this case? Will Jordan's request that the paternity lawsuit be dismissed be granted? Or will the court side with the woman and order Jordan to take a paternity test? One wonders what the answers to these questions will ultimately turn out to be.
