My question involves paternity law for the State of Texas.
My ex-girlfriend cheated on me with an abusive alcoholic. She got pregnant. We were planning to be together for several months and everything was going okay, but she wouldn't stop communicating with the guy. We got a prenatal paternity test via amniocentesis and the results showed that I was the biological father of the child. Despite this, she went back to the guy as soon as he got back out of jail after his umpteenth DWI. I could see that this psychotic woman wasn't going to let go of her chaotic, physically violent relationship with him, and this was very frustrating for me. I feared for the life of my child and threatened to put this monster back in jail, but haven't achieved that yet.
Ever defiant, she decided she was going to marry this monster, although I don't believe she has yet. Despite the paternity test, she got this scumbag to sign an aknowledgement of paternity form so that when I went to the Attorney General asking for them to induce her to get a new paternity test, they said their hands were tied and referred me to Fathers for Equal Rights and a legal aid clinic.
How can I challenge this? The prenatal paternity test is not legally admissible because we mailed in the DNA samples instead of having them taken by a lab with fingerprints and photographs, and now she is refusing to allow another test to be done.
My son was born over a month ago and I still haven't seen him because she won't let me, and now this violent monster is stealing my rights as a father. I have been trying very hard to resist the temptation to take the law in my own hands. I need help ASAP. WHAT CAN I DO?
