The Doctorine of Equitable Estoppel In Paternity Cases

For six years the little girl called him "Daddy". He showed her the love and affection a father shows to a daughter.

Then suddenly, the father, known as "Mr. G." to the Pennsylvania court system, discovered that someone else had really been the child's biological father. He attempted to cut off all ties to the child and the child's mother with whom he had lived with but never married. He also refused to support the child.
