You should speak to an attorney who is thoroughly familiar with California's paternity laws. One of the first questions I would have for you is whether or not you signed a voluntary declaration of paternity (VDOP), not whether you are listed on a birth certificate. I would also want to know what interaction you had in this child's life since birth, and whether you were aware there was a donor.
