Court made my sons presumed father the leagal father with out dna now the biological dad did dna and confirmed paternity can he fight it on the court even tho the child doesn’t know him
Generally once the child has an established relationship with the person the child believes is his father and the non-bio father and child have formed that relationship, the Court will not reverse it because of a DNA test and would not even order the test if it would hurt the child.

If the court established paternity by the non-biological father, it is very unlikely that the court will even allow a DNA test to be completed. In New York, the relationship determines paternity, not biology.
