Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.

Are you being brought to court for child support?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no, i have found out that i might be a father of a girl that was adopted out to another family that i didn't even know she was born
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.

OK. You just need to file a Motion for Genetic Test in the county where the mother lives and serve her with a copy. You can find a sample form here: http://www.courtselfhelp.idaho.gov/forms/CAO_FL_4-7.rtf

what if the adopted child lives in california???
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize that the child was in CA. In that case you will have to file in California.

Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.

Here is info on how to do that in CA. http://www.courts.ca.gov/1201.htm

i really have to do everything through california???
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.

If that's where the child is, yes.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
even if it was adopted in idaho????
Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.

Yes.

Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.

What matters is where the child is, since it is paternity to that child that's being established.

Expert:  Chris T., JD replied 1 year ago.

No, that was an Idaho form, not a CA form. Follow the info in the link I provided above.
