If you are ordered to pay child support then there is a court case that establishes paternity.
However, it may be possible now, due to the recent change in the paternity laws in Michigan, for you ask for a DNA test in order to revoke paternity (MCL 722.1439).
You indicated that this question was being asked from someone in Detroit, Michigan. If you wish to try to file a motion on your own in Wayne County for this purpose, you can find a form motion on the Wayne County Friend of the Court's website at https://www.3rdcc.org/FOC.aspx, Click on Forms / In Pro Per Motions and download the form PACKET FD-FOC4038-Order of Filiation-Judge Motion. (The same forms could potentially be modified for use in other counties.)
You need to hurry!! You may only have until June 11, 2013, to file such a motion!!
So, if you are not comfortable filing a motion like this on your own contact an attorney as soon as you can!
