You can request a Continuance on the matter at hand. You will write a letter using the court case you have and request a continuance so you can get a Paternity test completed. You will mail the request to the clerk of the court via certified mail with return receipt requested. After you are certain it has been received, you need to contact the court and see if your continuance has been granted. Do not assume it has. If it has not, then you need to appear in court or whatever she is requesting may be granted in default
Then you need to file to have the Paternity test Ordered. So you will need to Petition that same court for an Order.
Is there any particular form to use, legal language and or websites where I can access this information? If I new how to answer/write the letter and what to put on it so it gets taken seriuosly and accepted I wouldn't be asking for help through here..
NJ does not have forms online. You need to get the Paternity Forms from court in your county. The letter just simply says you are requesting a continuance. I cannot write it for you. I can only tell you what needs to be done
