Customer Question
I was married to another...
I was married to another man and got pregnant. The guy I got pregnant by didn't know about til 15 years later. While I was pregnant I dated someone else and he signed an acknowledgement of paternity at the hospital. I later divorced my husband and married the guy that signed the acknowledgement of paternity. Now the bio dad wants a blood test. Can he force me to take one?

He could certainly seek a paternity test in court. The issue is already complicated for you in that the man you were married to is presumed the dad but then the other guy signed the AOP. This would be enough of factual issue for the biological father to ask for a paternity test.

My research shows that Arkansas has no statute of limitations to establish paternity. You would be entitled to child support if the person asking for the test proves to be the father.
