How to go about getting a paternity test even tho I signed the birth Certifcate

Tallahassee, FL |

At the time of my child birth I was unaware that someone else could be the father. My relationship with the mother ended years ago and a court order for me to pay child . Ive been paying , but last month after a court hearing she gotten upset with me because I'm not making the same salary and she want more and unable to pay more. So after court she tells me ,"oh your the father any how", my heart drop, so what do I do now because I want to know is this or isn't this my child Ive been caring for , for 13 years?

  1. So was a paternity action ever done establishing your parental rights and time sharing with the minor child? Were you ever married to the mother? More information is needed and I would recommend you consult with a local family law attorney in your area directly.

    Many great attorneys can be found here on Avvo and offer free consultations. Good luck.
