My question involves paternity law for the State of: Florida
I've been on and off with my ex for three years, during one of these breaks I was seeing someone else then got back with my ex, I am now pregnant and not sure who the father is. The other man and I came to an agreement that we wouldn't test for DNA because he's happy with his life and I can raise my child on my own, but my ex is threatening that if the baby is his he will take me to court, spend all his money and fight to take my unborn son from me.
My ex has had domestic violence charges against him, I was to much of a coward to ever file a report when it mattered, but I am going to file one now because I am scared for my child's life and mine and want documentation, he tried to get me to abort my child numerous times, has been physically, mentally and emotionally abusive towards me several times, sends me naked pictures of the girls he's having sex with, has a drinking problem and says things like 'I'm embeded into him', 'he 'see's me', 'I am under his skin' and 'will come for me', he's scaring me, I can't seem to get rid of him and now that their is a little life involved I'm afraid it's only going to get worse. He's already said that the baby isn't his and he doesn't want it, told everyone I'm a whore and it's not his, but now that he's found out it's a boy he wants custody and the baby to have his last name, I told him I'm not married so the baby will have my name and I'm not doing a DNA test because I don't want him involved, his response 'Bitch I'll make sure I have a say, see you in court, f**k off Cunt'. He also tried to force me to get an amnio to establish paternity now, which they were going to do because of test results showing a possiblity of downsyndrome, which he asked me to abort again (results show baby is fine though) I refused to get amnio because of miscarriage risk which has made things worse.
Sorry for all the info and language, but it's important for some history for a better response of what legal rights I may have or not, so after all that, I need to know can he force me to do a paternity test? Can he force me to change the baby's last name if it is indeed his? and what's the possibility of him getting custody with his history? I fear that I already know the answer but any legal information would really help!
