My question involves paternity law for the State of: Tennessee
I have been doing research about paternity laws in the state of Tennessee and am having a hard time of finding anything conclusive. My fiance is being accused of fathering a child that is not known for a definite fact is his. With this being said, he not knowing for 100% positive he wasn't the father and whether or not she was lying, went to two Doctor visits with his ex after being told he was the father. They were in agreement, and the Doctor notified, that a paternity test was/is to be done. She notified him of the birth of the baby, and he arrived at the hospital hours after the birth of that precious baby. My fiance never signed a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity or any other paper work for that matter. We are now being told she has placed him on the birth certificate as the baby's father. Is this possible? Granted, the child has her surname, but we don't want my fiance on the birth certificate until its a definite fact and not a possibility. We are still wanting a paternity test, even though its obvious my fiance is not the child's father due to blood typing. The mother is B, my fiance O, and the child is AB.. No possible way;however, the mother will not stop. She continually states other wise and how she is going to get him(my fiance) and all he is worth. Would this in turn constitute paternity fraud? She did something without his consent and we have messages stating how she wants his money. What can we do to get his name of the birth certificate?? What is the time frame? Please help.
