STATE OF ARKANSAS
The mother of my child allowed another man to sign the Birth Certificate knowingly. Both of them were well aware of the fact that I was the biological Father. She said her reason for this was she didn't not want her children to have different last names. The mother and the person who signed the Birth Certificate were not married at the time but were engaged. She has an older daughter and a younger son by the same person. This event took place more than 6 years ago. Since then I have had a stagnant relationship with my daughter because I am not the legal parent. Well, in the past two year they have since gotten a divorce. In the divorce settlement he was ordered by the courts to pay child support for his two biological children but she did not seek child support for my daughter. Now she has filed a child support claim against me. I had to sneak and take a blood test with my daughter when she was less than two years old. So I do have the proof that she is daughter. I am basically worried about trying to provide for my daughter all these years, and having her to file for back child support. Can anyone give me any advice?
