    Default Do Not Know Fathers Name

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

    (Pregnant and one night stand , does not know the guys real name ,

    So my friend had a one night stand with this guy from a dating app they got to know each other and etc. Apparently the guy lied to her about his name and was just a typical guy. She then finds out she pregnant. To make matters worse He had been talking to her from one of those fake number app as well and cannot be found on any social media. But she cannot reach him anymore. But she does have one picture of him they took together at the hotel but you kinda cant tell too much from the picture. She also does not know his address or anything. No friends or anyone close to him. How can she file for child support after the baby is born with so little information? Can she still get government assistance. We are in the state of New York by the way .

    Yes, she can still get government assistance even if she has very little information on the alleged father.

    She can't.

    Her eligibility for "government assistance" obviously depends on the criteria for whatever program from which she wants assistance. Typically, however, the extent of one's income and assets are an important factor, and we obviously known nothing about your friend in this regard. If your intent was to ask whether your friend's promiscuity will render her ineligible for "government assistance" for which she might otherwise qualify, the answer is no.

    Has your friend considered hiring a private investigator to find the guy or terminating the presumably unintended pregnancy?

    No she wants to keep it she said & she said if she cant find him she would do what she has to do to focus on her responsibility of the child.

    What about the picture? Could it help or not really right

    Maybe a good private investigator could use the picture along with whatever other information she has to find the guy. Impossible to be conclusive in the abstract.

    It's a long shot but after the baby is born your friend can submit its DNA to one of those services that tries to find long lost relatives. She might get a hit on a sibling or cousin, which would help with tracking down the father.

    Your friend and the child will be better off not looking for this poor excuse for a human being. Child support being ordered does not mean it is paid. There is also a possibly this poor excuse for a human being could file for and get visitation. Even if the only reason is to get back at her for finding him and taking him to court.

    Ummm...why is the father of the OP's friend's unborn child any more of a "poor excuse for a human being" than the OP's friend is? They both engaged in the same consensual sexual act.

    Yeah...it would be a terrible thing for the not-yet-born child to have a chance at a relationship with both parents.

    The friend is taking responsibility for her actions. Clearly the biological father never had any intention of being responsible for his actions.
