State: Louisiana. Last year (Feb, 2015 to be exact) My

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.

Hello.... and thank you...I am being sued for child support by a woman claiming that her daughter is mine.She has an extensive criminal record that I did not know about when we were together for only two months time.Alcoholic, drug addict, seriously angry and violent, I have proolf of this in damage to my house and belongings, theft of jewelry, clothing, etc...So, she applied for State assistance and wrote down on the form me as Father of this child, now 1.5yrs old I believe.I blocked any and all contact with her over one year ago.She stated to me in text messages she will not come after me for child support, she wants nothing from me, and I am "Off the hook..."The state is forcing me to giv ethem all of my financial records, tax returns, costs of living, etc before any DNA tests can be excecuted....I do not oppose the DNA test, but do not think I should be forced to give up all of my financial info before the DNA test.Obviously she stole my SSN as wellPlease Help

I want to file for custody for both my kids, however the father is only on one birth certificate and we never got a paternity test but we're not 100% my son is his. 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 am an unmarried father with paternity has been established

I am an unmarried father with paternity has been established via an affidavit in the state of Arizona. I am currently in a somewhat hostile situation with my ex as she continues to change my ability to see my son. I was able to see him every weekend and bring him my home in Chandler Arizona after picking him up in Douglas Arizona she seems to react when she gets angry at me and make changes to this visitation or tries to cancel the visitation on a regular basis we have no child support in place however I supported my son and provide her funds monthly with no questions or concerns. I also provide my son's Health Care. I have a hard time understanding simply because we're unmarried why fathers in my position are treated so less than fathers who are married. I would like to see about the possibility of seeking joint and physical custody. The laws don't seem to support the father in the scenario and I am concerned I'm a good father she does not question that but she tends to use him and hold him against me I recently asked her why she's changing the visitation and she simply said because I can I'm lost I love my son and I just want some good time with him he's eighteen months old and I know this is an important time for him to bond with me she also has very strong ties in Mexico for family is well-off and I have concerns that she could simply cross the border and never return if she already has a home in her name in Mexico I don't know if I have the right to put in place a block at the border since there's been no legal documents in place other than paternity being established I really need help
