My question involves paternity law for the State of: California
I'm a 16 year old girl and am 1 month pregnant by my 22 year old boyfriend (yes, I know it's illegal, so please don't comment. We've slept together once, and apparently both the pill and the condom failed). We've decided to give the baby up for adoption. Obviously, I want to protect him from any charges, and am thus planning on leaving the father section on the birth certificate blank. He will be in the delivery room with me. Is there any way the hospital or the state can demand a paternity test and use it to prosecute him? Thanks in advance.
