My question involves child support in the State of: Georgia
My son just got hit with a petition to up child support on a child he's not been able to see since he left Georgia.
He is met with a lot of frustration and heartache at the fact that this woman has worked to keep him from his child and these old feelings bubbled to the top with this new petition. He was reliving hes anger at what a bitch this woman has been about his child when all of a sudden it dawned on him that she mght not be just hiding his child to make him miserable. She might actually be hiding something else that she doesn't want him to know - THAT THIS CHIlD IS NOT HIS. Since he hasn't been able to see the childd since it was about 2 years old, he's just now realizing that maybe she doesn't want him to see the child bescause it looks SO MUCH LIKE THE REAL FATHER and nothing like either him or his ex that if he were able to see this, his ex knows it might raise suspicions in his heart. He realizes now that neither he nor the state ever questioned whether the child was his because they were married and therefore the child was presumed to be his. The question would be, in this type of case, can he compel the state to do a DNA test under the theory that the issue is somehow being raised again with a request to raise child suppeot payout.
