Good morning. I certainly understand your concern. What was the basis for which you were taken to court? Did the mother try and go after you for child support?

Thank you for the reply. Yes, you still want to go back to court if there is a hearing date set. The reason why I say this is because you want to get a court order, signed by the Judge, that has legal effect, stating that you ARE NOT the father of the child. This way, the mother does not try and come after you again at a later time for support or anything related to the child and if she does, you can present the court documents showing you are not the father and not responsible and the matter will be dismissed.
