Well when he was born I obviously was under the impression that he is my son. How can that be held against me? That's not fair

fair has nothing to do with it. law does. if you signed the voluntary acknowledgement at the birth, then you admitted you were the dad. you had 60 days to contest that. you did not.

or a judge determined you were the dad. you had thirty days to contest that. you did not.

you cannot have unlimited time to change your mind about paternity.

They don't tell you that. How can they expect me to know these things? So wouldn't it be fair for them to say that? Which brings me back to not being fair.

they do tell you. it is on the voluntary acknowledgment form. it says you have 60 days to contest it. did you not read it before you signed it?

the law is that if you do not like a final court order, you have 30 days to appeal. you may not have been told that by the judge or the other lawyer. that is why you should have had your own lawyer.

again, fair has nothing to do with it. there is a wonderful county fair in grayslake every july. go there for fair.

When the baby is born or at court? Yeah well if I knew I would have.
