I have a baby on the way and would like a dna test performed, but I don’t have reason to believe I’m not the father. I just want to make sure and also do want to negativity impact my relationship with both mother and child.
If there is ANY question in your mind as to whether you are the father, then request a DNA test. Its better to find out now that you are or are not the father than to act as the father and pay many years of child support only to find out years later and thousands of dollars later that you are not the father.
