If you are married to the Mother of the child, then you are the presumed Father. You do however; have every right to ask for a proper DNA test. The story she is feeding you is a bunch of bull. I would caution you, that if you have taken on the responsibility and have actively been a part of this child’s life, a Judge may be very reluctant to let you off the hook.
