Thank you for your reply.
1) The husband is considered the father of all children who are conceived during the marriage. Since you were married when this child was born, you are considered the father. The court may deny any petitions to challenge paternity
since seven years have passed and you have been taking care of this child. Even if the court ordered paternity testing, it is possible that you will still be treated a the father and can be ordered to be financially responsible for this child. The court will not easily remove you from that parental responsibility
unless the biological father comes forward to challenge paternity, or there is a step-parent adoption where you voluntarily relinquish parental rights
. For all legal purposes your name will remain on the birth certificate as the father and you will unfortunately be ordered to pay child support
if she requests it.
2) As to the fake ID, since the marriage is now dissolved there is nothing you can do about the fake ID. If she was an adult when she got married, the marriage would still be valid and the divorce
as well. In general a fake ID is considered a misdemeanor offense and she would have had to been charged with this offense within one year that she committed the offense. Since you are not even sure that she actually used a fake ID, the police would not be able to charge her with anything.
