There is something called presumed paternity
which says a man whose name is XXXXX XXXXX birth certificate and is with the woman at time of conception and/or birth and lives together is the father. That presumption can be challenged only in the first 4 years. You need to IMMEDIATELY file a PETITION FOR PATERNAL ADJUDICATION with the family court and have them order a DNA test so that you can be ruled NOT THE FATHER and that order would kill the presumed paternity, so you won't owe any child support. He needs to do this before the child turns 4. Go to legalzoom.com for the petition. Once you're adjudicated as not the father, the orders will be dropped.
