Why would someone file challange to paternity where he knows he is the father.i took dna test same day after child support hearing that I filed . My ex nationality he is half Thailand and half Laos . His parents were against me when they found out I was pregnant and even before that , I'm White Russian . My ex is 41 and I'm 38 yo. I'm so mad ,,, I know his sister and mother forced him to file for DNA .

Well, if he's an adult, and he filed for proof of paternity, it's highly doubtful that his female relatives "forced" him into anything, especially considering the nationality in question.

Generally, men who ask for DNA proof do so in order to establish once & for all that they are the biological father.

My question to you: Why would you be so upset about proving what you already "know"? If you are 100% certain, then the test will just prove you out, correct? Why try to get out of it?

Here's the deal. He has just as much right to question and request proof as you do. If he wants to have proof of paternity, and you give it to him, it's one less thing he can argue about. But, if you stall on the paternity issue, it is a reasonable doubt for him that the child is actually his.

Just provide the proof and move forward. It's a protective step on both sides.

I don't know what state you're in, but here in NY if you're not married, there's no presumption of paternity. Even if the father's name is on the BC, before CS is set, the courts need to establish paternity, so they will order a DNA test be done when the petition for CS is filed.

I'm not sure what the circumstances of your case are, but thats how it works here in NY. I don't see the problem with establishing beyond reasonable doubt that this child belongs to him. It would work in your favor, actually.
