Yes, that is correct.
Hello Thank you IN Maryland, there is a presumption of Paternity when a child is born to the married couple. That means, regardless of an affair the law says the husband is the Father of that child Therefore, I suggest, the only reason a court will order a Paternity test for a child at the age of 4 is for Health Reasons only. For instance, if there is a severe illness and the Bio Father is the only one who has the same type blood, etcSo I suggest that your rights will not be terminated
Is there any precautionary measures that I should take now or should I just wait until the Bio Dad tries to go to court.
Does it help the case that he has known for over a year, but he is afraid to step forward because he is in the military and it could terminate his and her career?
