No, not if your son was born during your marriage to your husband. Your husband is legally presumed to be the father of the child, and the only man who can challenge your son's paternity in court is your husband. If the other man files anything with a court asking for a DNA test, you need to hire an attorney to immediately file a motion to dismiss the request.
