Are you saying that the baby's mama sued you for child support but has changed her mind? If so, she can file a notice of nonsuit (assuming she brought the case herself--if the OAG brought it for her, you're in for a ride).

If you are on the birth certificate, you are the presumed father and you will eventually be ordered to pay child support. If you are not the biological father of the child and the child is less than 4 years old, you need to file a determination of paternity action.

You really need a family law attorney to help you out with this. If you don't think you can afford one, consider contacting the Texas Legal Services Center ( They can refer yuou to great attorneys who will work at a discount if you meet certain income guidelines.

Good luck!
