Here is my ordeal . I am engaged to a man my family dislikes. He moved out of state to keep my family from pursuing custody of my then, two minor children. I was pregnant when he left and recently gave birth to his son. While away, he; according to him, made a one night mistake with his ex wife. She ended up pregnant and didn't know whom the father was. She recently (7 days ago) gave birth to this child and is claiming it to be his. The child doesn't resemble him at all. My fiance is half Korean and in his other two children, you can tell they have Asian genes. She resides in Fairfax County Virginia. I have several questions about the issue: BTW.. THANK YOU SINCERELY NOW.
1.) Since as of right now, she is not pursuing a DNA test to prove he is his, can he somehow speed up the process? My fiance and I reside in Missouri and the child and mother live in Virginia.
2.) They were married at one time and she is claiming the costs are too expensive to change her last name. The child now has my fiance's last name as well as she does. If proven not to be the biological father (which he doesn't want to be) is there any way to have the childs last name changed to that of his biological father?
3.) IF proven to be the biological father, he has stated he wants to sign away any and all parental rights. (She has acknowledged she was trying to get pregnant JUST to have that tie to him and receive money; however, they only were together once) He told her from the beginning he didn't want a child with her. She also acknowledges she only wants money and would not render to any visitation or any contact. Can he sign away rights yet still be obligated finacially to the child?
4.) Also IF proven not to be his, can he enforce that she take on her maiden name?
5.) IF not his also, could we file harrassment charges against her for claiming to everyone (including his family) that the child is his?
6.) How quickly could this matter be resolved in Virginia as we are about to move to another state?
Thanks so much in advance for any and all help. It is continuesly driving me nutty to know what our options are and how quickly we can get it resolved. I'm unsure has to how many possibilities there actually are. I know of two others besides my fiance. She is just looking to keep that tie to him. But I'm looking to get his last name changed as quickly as possible IF proven NOT his.
