If there is no consent of the potential father to the test, please contact a local lawyer practicing family law (Familienrecht)!
The child is entitled to know his or her real father even when recognized by your partner as his child (the latter is new due to a European court judgment!).
Sorry it was a judgment of the German constitutional court.
However, if your partner desires officially not to figure anymore as the father the process has to be filed (Vaterschaftsanfechtung) within 2 years from knowing facts that he could not be the real father.
This may have important consequences in social and medical insurance and maintenance for the child and therefore should be considered in all details.
