I have a two year old son. When he was born my fiancé at the time signed his birth certificate. He’s raised him with me as we are now married and just had another child 3 months ago. Now my ex claims to think that my 2 year old son is his and is wanting a paternity test and rights to him. What can he do? Do I have to give him the test and rights if he is the father? Even though he’s been MIA for the last two years?
If your ex files a case and the judge orders a paternity test, then you have to comply. If he is the father, he will obtain custody and parenting time. It will take a little bit of time for there to be introductions and familiarity between child/father.
