Is there a statue of limitations to contest parentalship?

I have 3 children (ages 10, 12 and 16) from my previous marriage. My ex-wife is telling my 12 year old that I am not her father, that someone else is due to a relationship she had when we were separated in 1990. Of course in 1991 when my 12 year old was born, my ex and I were back together and I thought the baby was mine, so I signed her birth certificate and all the papers accordingly.

I want to know the truth, so I will pay for DNA test. If I am NOT her father, is there a statue of limitations (or something) in Arizona that would make me continue to provide child support regardless - perhaps because I didnt contest it in time - or something?
