Answer: If someone in Maricopa county is wanting to prove they are not the father of a child, he would need to file papers to establish the paternity of the child and the court would order a test to be done either establishing you as the father or showing that you are not the father. You can find those forms at the following link: http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/superiorcourt/self-servicecenter/forms/familycourt/fc_group_6.asp however, due to the complicated nature of your original question you may find it more beneficial to speak with a family law attorney regarding this matter. You can find a lawyer in Arizona at the State Bar’s find a lawyer database.
