Jason Patric


In Paternity Trial

2/21/2013 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jason Patric was just shut down by a judge in his bid to win paternity and custody rights over his son ... TMZ has learned.

Jason was locked in a bitter legal war with ex-GF Danielle Schreiber. The two were together for years but broke up in 2009. At the time they ended the relationship Jason told Danielle he didn't have any money to give her but he would give her his sperm, provided he had nothing to do with raising the child and she didn't ask for child support. 

Danielle was artificially inseminated with the help of a doctor, and Gus was born in December, 2009.  

Jason went away and had no contact with Gus, but came back in 2011. Jason and Danielle got back together ... but they broke up again. That's when he decided he wanted custody.

The trial has been going on for a week, and we've learned the judge just laid down the law -- a law that says if a man donates sperm to a woman to whom he is NOT married and she's inseminated with the help of a doctor ... the man has no paternity rights or claim of custody.

As we previously reported ... Danielle let Jason see Gus for visits, but there was no court order enforcing that.  We don't know if she will continue to let Jason see the child.

"provided he had nothing to do with raising the child and she didn't ask for custody"

According to this sentence, he wont raise the child and neither will she. Someone should proofread your work, TMZ...

Agree with the judge to a point,
But given that they had a relationship and the kid probably knows him as his real dad,
She should allow him to be active in his life in some way..
Every kid needs a mom and dad..
We shouldn't deny that right just because we hate the father.
a kid who knows who his dad is deserves to
bond in some way, shape or form..given the father is a normal guy with good intentions and is positive.....
Fair is fair....

If he is fit, then he should be allowed to share joint custody of the child provided he make child support payments. I don't care what kind of arrangement they made. This should be about what is best for that child, not how the child was conceived.

Technically, it's the law.
It would be clear if they had not ever have a relationship..
But it's not good for the kid...
So poor lil thing gets the bad end of the stick....

So that's the trick to avoiding those pesky child support issues. Many a man would be thrilled to be in his position. Dude should count himself lucky!

Jason is a douchebag now suddenly he has an epiphany that he now wants a kid that he never bothered raising in first place?

Early years raising kid is hardest, sleepless nights etc. Now the kid is no longer a baby he wants him. No bloody way!

What a horror show. Don't donate sperm, I guess.

This is a good law for people strictly seeking a sperm donor/egg donor but I don't think it can be that black and white clear cut whwn there was a pre-existing relationship and then another go round after the baby was born. I don't think he should have full custody but joint custody should absolutely be considered. People can mature and change their minds and a child should have the right to know both parents as long as it is a healthy nurturing relationship. I just can't stand it when either or both parents use a child as leverage or a possession to gain the upper hand in a court case. I hope tjey find some happy medium for everyones sake!

I don't have any money to give you in the divorce, but here take some of my ***.

whats funny is if she wanted him to pay child support regardless of their initial agreement of him just being a sperm donor..the law would magically force him to pay ..

women win the judicial system regardless of which side they end on..feminism has completely emasculated the justice system..they win everything
