My question involves paternity law for the State of: Texas
I had been with this girl for over two years! very quickly in the relationship, she got pregnant, i thought the child was mine, she claimed she had slept with no one else! I didnt use protection, i pulled out but i know that isnt full proof, so i assumed the child was mine and was there for everyting. Two years later, me an my girlfriend split up! my supposed child turned 1 march 27th 2012. in fear of being forced to pay child support, i without mothers permission, got a dna test done on the child! results came back and it turns out i am not the father! i confronted my ex and she admitted that she had slept with another guy in the beginning of our relationship, that guy is the biological father. my name is on the birth certificate, no dna test was done at the time cause i was misled into believing he was mine. what do i need to do in order to get my name off birth certificate and all my responsibilities toward the child waived? he has been proven to not be mine, i dont see any point in being financially responsible for a child that i have been misled to believe that he was mine, What do i do? please help!
