How can I challenge paternity?

Asked over 1 year ago - Los Angeles, CA

Recently, I was served with documents from child services requesting child support payments. My girlfriend disappeared from my life few years ago and recently appeared in my life claiming that the baby is mine. I have evidence that she was dating other guys during our relationship and the baby does not look like me. What are the legal steps to challenge the paternity here in LA? Los Angeles Attorneys Please!
