    Default Research for Novel

    My question involves paternity law for the State of: New York

    Scenario: It's 1991 and my character is trying to claim paternity on his ex-girlfriend's child even though he is not the father. The mother of the child is a prostitute and drug addict who has no idea who the biological father could be. My character doesn't want the child to end up in foster care and wants to sign the birth certificate. Is that even plausible?

    You would have to check the laws of NY state in the 90s...which may have changed drastically since then.

    I heavily doubt anyone here is going to do that for you.
