Manser vs. Sehr was a paternity test case that was aired on the television show, Paternity Court in 2013. This was according to many critics, one of the biggest paternity blunders in many years.
The paternity test case revolved around Bill Manser, Elizabeth Sehr, and ‘their’ son Dylan. Sehr has earlier conducted a DNA test somewhere in 1992, which indicated that Manser was the father of her child with a 99.6% probability.
Following the DNA test, Manser was compelled to pay child support for Dylan for more than two decades, according to the laws. All this while, Manser maintained that he was not the father of Sehr’s son Dylan.
After paying the child support for years, Sehr and Manser appeared on the television show, Paternity Court in 2013 to have the paternity test conducted again. A newly conducted DNA results revealed that Manser was not the father of Dylan after all.
The case of Manser vs. Sehr received a great deal of publicity both on the internet and the media, as it highlighted the potential for errors in paternity testing. This case also sent a warning to men to be extremely careful, as they may be forced to pay child support for children who are not biologically theirs.
