i am a soldier in the united states army. in 2008 i signed a birth certificate for my daughter. i signed a waiver of paternity which gave me 60 days to reverse the process, but immediately after signing, i returned to iraq for duty for another 8 months. after returning i took a dna test and found out the child was not mine. i tried to have my name removed but since i sign the waiver of paternity, i was not allowed. i just wanted to know that since i was on r&r during the signing and had to return to war, would that give me the opportunity to take my name off of the birth certificate.
