Please allow me some time to read your facts and type my response.

If you receive an email regarding a phone call for an extra price that comes directly from the website and not from me and I have no control over the sending of the email. I don't take part in the telephone program and only work through this format and under your facts this format should be sufficient.

Did the court enter an order establishing paternity eight years ago? If so, was it an agreed order or was it after a contested hearing?

I'm sorry, as I said above, I don't participate in the telephone program. However, the request will go into the queue and another expert can pick up and call. In the meantime we can continue here or you can wait for the call, whichever you prefer.

My last question was asking whether a court had ever entered an order, whether your husband was required to be there or not?
