1 DNA testing on Wed Aug 03, 2011 5:31 am

Hello everyone! i would like to seek for some advice. this is just a continuation of my last post before. what happened was my brother dated someone before and then the girl got pregnant and he's pointing out that my brother is the father of her child. actually that girl is not his GF.the girl gave birth already. at first they were demanding for too much money from us but we managed to compromise with them.my brother even signed the birth certificate to give his surname.but after all that happened, i am still not sure and not contented that the baby is my brothers child.after all she' is not really his GF and we all dont know what happened behind my brother's back.so right now what i want is a DNA test.we told this to the family of the girl.the girl and her mother agreed but the father said that ok, we will do DNA testing but once this proves that my brother is the real father then they will file a case against us, because my brother abused her daughter! i was really upset when i heard this because why will they now file a case against my brother after we asked for DNA test? we are not turning out back to support the baby.we just want to be sure about everything and we just want to prove that the baby is ours so that we can accept him whole heartedly and w/o hesitation. what case can they file to my brother? there was no abuse that happened bec. the girl knew what happened between them.there was no harassment or anything and my brother is supporting the child right now even if its not yet proven.

it depends what they will allege. it can range from rape to abduction with consent. in you previous thread, i said he didn't have to acknowledge the child yet, but since he did, it will require a court case, and not just a dna test, to remove his name from the birth certificate.

good day!

I almost have the same situation as bubbly08's brother. The girl that got pregnant is pointing me to be the father of her child. I have signed the birth certificate of the child but now I have doubts that the kid is really mine.
If say, I will have a DNA test done and the result will be negative, how will I go about removing my name on the child's birth certificate...

By the way, the girl is married but I don't think she still communicates with her husband.

did she declare herself to be married in the birth certificate?

since she is married, you are not even allowed to declare yourself the father because the child, being born by a married mother, should be the legitimate child of the mother and the husband.

your remedy is to file a petition in court to correct the birth certificate

Thank you for all the responses. I was planning to do that but since i have already signed the birth cer, is it true that court will order to have a dna test done at my cost even if the girl is married? If that is the case then is it ok to have a dna test first before filing a petition?
