If I am not the father, do I need a paternity lawyer? A family lawyer can request a DNA test and help you contest in court that way you don’t end up paying child support.
Transcription of the family lawyer's response: Ok, another question is if I’m not the father, do I need a paternity lawyer? You do. You need a family law attorney that can go to court with you, that can request a DNA test because if you don’t contest that paternity, then you will be the legal father and you will be paying child support. You only have 90 days after you find out that you are not the father to contest paternity for him.
