  • My wife has a daughter with another man and has agreed to give up his rights. What is needed paper work, requirements,and ect...

    Trying to find out what we need to do.

    Shari’s Answer

    I agree with Ms. Langford. You need to hire an attorney to do this correctly for you. The worst thing you could do is try to do this yourself and end up messing it up and getting denied your requested relief.

  • I SIGNED BIRTCERTICATE THINKING IT WAS MY CHILD. ONE MONTH AFTER BEING BORN PATERNITY TEST SHOWED IT WAS NOT MINE.

    IS I RESPONSIBLE FOR CHILD SINCE I SIGNED OR WHAT MAY I DO TO CHANGE LAST NAME, MOTHER NOT COOPERATING THREATENING TO FILE FOR CHILD SUPPORT.

    Shari’s Answer

    You're going to have to file a paternity test to get this situation taken care of. It's unfortunate that you were deceived. You want to get this corrected as soon as possible because after a certain period of time goes by you will not be able to contest paternity.

    Shari’s Answer

    You want to consult with an attorney prior to the child being born so you can protect your rights at the time the child was born and get paternity testing set up.

    Shari’s Answer

    I would contact the attorney who signed off on the protective order and meet with that person about what you can do to have to order rescinded. You may not get anywhere and have to wait it out. Be cautious that you aren't being manipulated by the other party to get these charges dropped.

    You may be entitled to an offset given the amount of time you've had the child, but you certainly cannot simply on your own decide to not pay child support. You need an experienced family law attorney to make this case for you and pursue a modification of the current order.
