Good Evening.

If they are refusing then you have to make an application with the court for the court to order it. Then then cannot refuse.

You have to wait until the child is born before this can happen.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

just a quick follow up on that, would the court deny something like this or is it something they usually grant considering there is an area of doubt?

Good Evening.

They will grant it.

There is no reason for them not to grant it.

You want to be certain the child is yours.
