Can a mother in New York State refuse to have her baby take a paternity test?
I dont want my daughter taking a paternity test for my boyfriend. I'm giving her my last name and I know its his baby but I dont want her to have anything to do with him what so ever because he threatening to get custody of my unborn child when she gets here so I'm planning on not giving her his last name and refusing her to take a DNA test and I wanted to know if I could legally do that. And doesnt he need to know my social security number inorder to take me to family court?

i have 6 children. and i honestly think no matter what has happend between you and the father has nothing to do with the child. your hurting yourself so you want to hurt the father by not having him have nothing to do with this child? no honey. DNA or not the courts can make you do it. if you feel he is uncapable of watching this child thats something you have to take up in court and have monitored visits. but believe me you will regret all of this later when you are over him. im not saying it to be mean but honey ive been there. i gave my child my last name just to change it to his 5 yrs later. he was a drug addict and a felon always in jail. but its not the childs fault who we chose to have our kids with. so just think really hard with your heart and not your anger please about what you want to do. the more you fight the harder hes gonna make it. good luck

Why are you not wanting to do the test. Is there something wrong with this situation, Yes there is! Unless he is abusive, or that kinda thing, you cannot deny him anything about that child, Or if he hasnt paid child support, he can be denied whatever. Anything short of that, its up to the courts to decide this. He does not need a social number to take you to court all he needs is an address, a place of work, your families addy, that kinda thing. If he wants to sue, he has every right and then the court will decide this. This is the way most laws are in the states, If he is doing what he has to do to support the child, and is not abusive or treating you and the child badly, he can have as much to do with that child as he wants. You cannot stop that. As long as he is doing what hes ordered to do. Now, im not in New York, but id guess that the childrens laws are pretty stiff for both parents, because of the nature of this, meaning, having to do with the children. The hard reality of this is that if he can prove you unfit, thats it for you, you will lose the kids. That is the reality of it, sorry about that, but thats the way it is. Thats why divorce and child court is so hard on people, itll rip the families apart and put people against one another, families on bothsides, it aint no picnic, so get ready, and be prepared. Good luck to you and yours!

A choose can't deny anyones DNA request. A courtroom won't immediately order paternity exams using fact a paternity action has been filed. this is going to study the petition to be certain if there is adequate information contained therein to warrant or justify the compelling of considered one of those attempt. If the courtroom orders a paternity attempt, the mother, toddler, and alleged father will all be examined at a courtroom-detailed facility. A courtroom decision of paternity is very final, and a replica of the courtroom's order would be mandatory to be certain the toddler's rights, the two present and destiny. If a guy or woman refuses to kae a paternity attempt, the courtroom could carry the guy in contempt, or a default (computerized) judgment could be entered against the guy. If the mother refuses a attempt, the courtroom could immediately order that paternity isn't restablished, and consequently, no toddler help is due from the claimed father.

No he can go get a court order and youll have no choice, but dont worry the court will not take your baby just because he tells them to. They can find out who you are by your name, address, birthday and all that. Not being smart but if you didnt want this guy in her life you shouldnt have made a baby. This situatuation happened to my brother in law, the girl even went as far as having another man sign the birth certificate, but that is what family court is for. She now has his last name and partial custody, it really made her look bad so think about that too before you make any sudden decisions.

Why would you refuse to have it done if you have no doubts who the father is? By having the test he can never come back later and say the baby's not his.
