Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
Once the child is born ask if she is prepared to have a paternity test. If not then you will have to commence proceedings in the Federal Circuit Court or Family court for orders that the rest be done.
Here is some information and look at the heading What do you need to do.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.

You can have the birth certificate changed after the DNA test. if she is going to delay then you have to go to court.
Make sure all your requests etc are in writing and you have copies to show she is not willing to work with you so when you apply you can seek an order for her to pay costs.
You will not get it done the day the child is born but within a few weeks it should be able to be done.
Confirm in writing to her what you have agreed to date and that once the child is born you will contact her again to arrange a time and place. You can then use this is she refuses on the issue of costs.
You are very welcome and thank you for using my services.
