We just recently found out that my eight year old daughter is not the child of the father who is listed on her birth certificate. (he signed a declaration of paternity at the time-CA) Her real bio. dad is my ex. from a couple weeks prior to her conception (so, I thought) I ran into him last year and after seeing his other daughter (by a different relationship), we did a home paternity test that came back positive. I was truly shocked and now must fix a big mess. The father listed on the certificate has been paying the state (when I was on welfare) and me child support off and on but I have now closed the case and returned to him at least what I still had in the bank (it's not right for me to continue getting it) Anyways, I have a few questions from all this. First off, can he get his debt to the state removed? Do I need to pay him back all past paid support? I ask because I don't work right now and it would be difficult to do as I have two other kids also. Also, my biggest question is, can I put the 'newly found father' on the certificate? He is excited to be the father and upset that he has missed out on the last eight years. Although both men are good guys, I would like the CORRECT father on the certificate also. I no longer live in California (or in the USA for that matter) so how do I go about getting this fixed? Any help or direction would be great. I hope I made sense, if I need to clarify anything, please tell me.
