    You stopped being part of the child's life, but you're on the birth certificate as the legal father and have done nothing to change that or to get a court order declaring nonpaternity? If not, you're the legal father.

    Has she filed in court for CS?
    If she has and it has not been ordered yet, you can deny paternity and request a court ordered DNA test.
