My question involves paternity law for the State of: CT or PA
My husband was recently contacted via FB by a young woman who says he is listed as her father on her birth certificate. He does remember a one-night stand with a woman that would result in a child that matches her stated age (23). She provides information on the mothers name, but no details of the timeframe that she was conceived or where she was born. Through some basic research, we can deduce she was born in either PA or CT. My questions...
Is it possible for a mother to list a fathers name without his consent in either of these states? Can the mother file for child support with no acknowledgement from my husband that he is the father and/or without his signing the birth certificate or otherwise "proof" of paternity?
Now that she is 23, is he obligated to pay back child support and/or how can he determine if he owes back child support?
He wants to contact this young woman and determine if she is his daughter, but first wants to understand better what he may be facing when he does so.
