  1. If you mean that she is approximately 13 weeks pregnant, it isn't going to happen. Paternity testing happens after the birth of the child.

  2. You have to wait until the child is born. If you you want to be sure you file a SAPCR and request a DNA test as soon as possible to establish that you are not/ are the father. Its best to do this early because you don't want build up a large amount of child support if you are the father.
