DNA testing/Child support

My boyfriend recently was told he had fathered a 5yr old child. There was never any mention that the child might be his previously. The mom was married to another man shortly after the kid was born and we believe his name is on the birth cert. The couple is now in the process of divorce and the mom has come after my b-friend for child support. My b-friend submitted to a DNA test, which was postive. The husband first wanted back child support, but seems to have removed himself from the situation, however the mom is now saying she wants child support. Does my b-friend have any rights? He doesn't feel obligated, he doesn't really know the child. Do ''presumed father'' laws apply? Is DNA admissable in CA court?
