Under the law, if you are currently married , the husband is presumed to be the Fathee of the chil, even though u maynot be living together. The only way to change that result is to file a Peitition for paternity and to serve it on the biological father. Once blood tests are done and it is proven who the Father is, the Father will be obliged to support the child financially.
