Recent Paternity questions

State: Louisiana. Last year (Feb, 2015 to be exact) My ex-husband and were divorced. We have one daughter. I am now questioning the paternity. I do not believe that Laurel ( My daughter is My ex-husbands) . He is the domiciliary parent. I pay 150$ in Child Support Payments each month. I committed adultery and that is why we were divorced. I am now married with the said other man. I get visitation for all of major school breaks and holidays. If I asked him for a paternity test , will that have any negative consequences on our agreement or on me in the future? If he takes the test, and it says negative, that he is not the father, then what do I do next? I know who the father would be. This only happened two days ago after a person indicated that the two looked a lot alike. What do I do? I don't want to lose my child or have negative consequences.

My son, whos gift certificate the father isnt on, has the same last name and has been the acting father for two years so does he have legal rights? Or would it just be best for me to call the police and go get my son?

I hired an attorney in early June to handle my paternity

I hired an attorney in early June to handle my paternity situation with my ex. He was supposed to serve her a paternity petition by processor server in time for the court date on August 9th and did not do so. Additionally he had a vacation planned during the week of the court date so did not show to court and sent me in alone with a petition to schedule which the judge reschuduled all the way on Nov 2. I've asked him twice now to send me written documentation of the attempt to serve my ex 8 days out from the court date and he has not done so. Clearly i will need to hire a new family law attorney. Any advice i getting my money back and moving forward?

My boyfriend and I have a 6 month old son and he didn't give me consent to take our son with me on my vacation with my family so I had him send me an email stating that as a legally binding contract that's what we agreed on. Could he somehow use anything against me in a future custody battle in court if he watches him while I'm away for a week even with the email?
