  • I received a request for paternity for my son we took the test i havnt received the results but the state has and now wheni took up my case it says they scheduled an establishment hearing what does that mean?
  • How can I request a paternity test for a child I have been ordered to pay support on? Unfortunately I did not seek legal counsel when I received the initial papers and wrote my response stating I did not believe I was the father. I did not pay the filing fee of $231 so they denied my statement. Where do I go from here? I live out of state.
  • I'm a father of 3 little girls my oldest 9yrsold from previous marriage.my other 2 babies with the mother is a full fledged narcissistic women,my kids and I would see her rage daily over disagreements, couldn't question her. In public eye she is the best mom and person in the world to strangers&church but, in our house it was hell. I had no clue what a narsisist was until I was looking for answers. Once u call her out on truth of her wrong doing , from lying her where about to doing things to my girls. She got caught cheating,now kids taken away from me? I need to know if my youngest is mine?
  • I am currently 5 months pregnant and the baby's father hasn't really been involved at all. He's leaving for a couple of months (for some job) and won't be back until after the baby is born so he will definitely miss the birth. If he's not there to sign the birth certificate do I have to list him as the father on the certificate? Can I leave his name out and just put mine. He's not interested in being a part of the baby's life so is there any way I can get sole custody?
  • I have a baby together w my girlfriend. I am the father, my name is on BC and my 7 mo old daughter has my last name. Girlfriend left with my daughter, staying at her grandmother's who has told me I'm not a good enough provider to father my little girl. What are my rights? I want to raise my daughter.
  • My girlfriend is pregnant with my child and due in August of this year. Unfortunately she moved out and is no longer speaking to me.I do not know her due date or if she even intends to put my name on the birth certificate at this point. I would like to file a action with the courts to establish paternity before the baby is born.I want to exercise any and all rights I have as father. How do I begin this process and can I get any assistance in doing so. I can not afford a attorney.
  • My husband will still be in prison when our child is born, do I need to have him sign the birth certificate from prison or can I just list him as the father as we are married?
  • I received a request for paternity for my son we took the test i havnt received the results but the state has and now wheni took up my case it says they scheduled an establishment hearing what does that mean?
  • I gave birth to my son in late April this year. His father was not there for his birth and has never met him. He had an outstanding warrant for his arrest and was just recently arrested. How do I get a DNA test to provide legal documentation that he is in fact the father of my child? Where do I start? Furthermore/Also, then what can I do next to try and obtain child support? Can anyone even receive child support from a person who is incarcerated? He is on social security by the way...so? Please Help!
