In this situation, an attorney would really help. If your family member needs an attorney, just let me know and I can find attorneys in your area once I know the general city/town that he's near. An attorney would help because he's going to want to get Child support enforcement division involved to get child support from the correct person. It is not going to be easy to do but an attorney will be able to do this for him. I strongly recommend it.
Just let me know and I can provide a list of attorneys for him.
In the meantime, this case allows for paternity testing of the biological father even though your family member is listed on the birth certificate. I'm sure family lawyers in your state know this case and others like it and know that they can try to get child support enforcement to go after the bio dad. However, knowing that this has to happen and getting it to happen could be two different things --- this is why I'm suggesting that he get an attorney to help him. After all, it could save him years in child support.
He does have a remedy here, and that is to get the bio dad DNA tested as in this case. A family lawyer will be able to help him with this.
