The obligations of a father are not necessarily dependent on biological relation.
In fact, it is up to you and @Ter to show that it is.

How can he get an honest answer if the wife screwed other men behind his back and will try to hide this from him ?
If the relationship is already filled with distrust, lies, and the accompanying lack of respect, they should break up anyway.
Why should this woman stay with this guy who thinks she is a cheating slut? He sounds insecure.
The right to know if the children he is devoting his time, energy and finances for, not to mention his emotional involvement, are his or the product of his wife's infidelity.
Is this right mentioned in law anywhere?
A paternity test would clarify matters for the father and the children, and maybe also for the adulteress if she had many extra-marital fucks.
Since this knowledge may or may not bring about benefits, I find this argument for benefits quite dubious.
As I already said, if the child wants to know, the child and the dad can go do it together and the state does not need to force anyone. This renders your argument moot.
If the idea is to get out of obligations to a child, then you can now descend from your supposed moral high ground.
Do you have kids, Ter?
