If the other man files for paternity
then the court will order the paternity test but usually each side pays for their own, although if he turns out not to be the father you can probably have the court order him to pay for all of the testing.
He can certainly ask for visitation
and will be ordered to pay child support
. He really can't do anything while you are deployed because the law allows you to object to and stop all proceedings while you are gone.
Unless he gets a court order and has the paternity test your husband is presumed to be the father.
