My question involves paternity law for the State of: Massachusetts
I had a brief encounter with a woman which resulted in her pregnancy. She avoided me and my calls and midway through her pregnancy she tells me she is pregnant and is living with another man. I assume it's his kid but at the time of the kid's birth, she contacts me and tells me it's mine and that she is no longer with this guy. She wanted me to take a paternity test and I avoided it. She told me she wanted the documents signed but that she would drop it and not pursue legal action against me becuase she does not want me involved if I don't want to be involed. That was four years ago and the other day I was served with a "complaint of paternity" document. If I take the patenity test, and it shows the kid is mine, do I have to pay child support?
