Yes, you can seek to have the paternity acknowledgment revoked if you know that this man is not the father (or even if you think he might not be). You DO have to respond to the custody papers he filed, but you're allowed to respond that he is not the father. The request to have paternity revoked can be filed at the same time, so it goes to the same judge. You will probably have to consent to a paternity test. But once it comes back negative, then this man won't have any claim to you or your son.
