Re: Child Born of Affair - Can Bio Father Demand DNA Testing
Allow me to add another dimension.
If the father does establish paternity and you have shown a willingness to block his time with his child, the judge could rule that the only way to even that score is to make him custodial parent.
However, there are several if's there. The father must make the effort to demand a paternity test. As long as he does not, you have nothing to worry about. Well, except the rumors, the stories and the looks you will get at Thanksgiving.
Until paternity is established otherwise, your husband is legally the father of his cousin's child.
Gotta admit, that was pretty creepy to type. As for his ability to parent, unless you were raped, the court will trust your judgment. If you hadn't thought him to be perfect father material, you wouldn't have engaged in unprotected sex with him.
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.
