My question involves paternity law for the State of: Massachusetts
I am the biological father of a child, but am not on the birth certificate.
I was never married to the mother, and never lived with her or the child. I live in another state.
I have been telling the mother that I want joint custody, and telling her I would sue her I heard that she got a someone else to sign the voluntary acknowledgement of paternity - and that he has been listed as the legal father on the birth certificate, even though I am sure he can't really be the father.
Do I have any rights to contest the voluntary acknowledgement of paternity, and demand that there be a DNA test to establish me as the real father?
I am pretty sure the mother and friend will pretend to be happily together and do whatever they can to prevent me from filing a case.
Do I have the right to file a paternity case, if they already signed the voluntary acknowledgement of paternity?
