My husband and I were contacted by a former coworker of s

Hi. My husband and I were contacted by a former coworker of his that she had a baby and my husband is the father. My husband admits to having slept with her on one occasion. We also know she was in a relationship with someone else. My husband is questioning the paternity. I told her without a test, we don't care. My husband wants nothing to do with her or the child. She did name the child after him. We want to force her to do a DNA test since she refused over the phone. Can she refuse to do the DNA test? And if we choose to ignore her, can she come after him later on? Right now my husband is a full time student and I am the primary source of income. She knows we are well off and I feel she just wants money. She never mentioned anything until after the baby was born. My other question is how can she name the baby with my husband's surname if he was not present and did not voluntarily accept paternity. Thank you.JA: OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I am just now looking into it. She called us over the weekend. So no.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No. That covers it.JA: OK. Got it.
