Yes, you can deny someone a paternity test. However, if they have a court order, they will be able to demand for the test. You need to be prepared for anything. In the mean time, talk to a lawyer to get the options that you may have.

If there is a court order, you would need an attorney to plead your reasons to the judge for not complying. If you refuse a court order, you'll be in contempt of court. Good Luck.

The thing is..this guy my x..has NO BASIS for this accusation. he said he just wants to ruin my life, and by bringing up doubt of my daughters paternity will def cause problems. I DID cheat on my daughters father with my x ONCE but i was already pregnant (but didnt know it) i want NOTHING to do with this man (my x) He is a pathological liar...a heroin addict and a con artist. He really is just trying to cause hell for me because i have moved on, we havent had ANYTHING to do wit eachother in over 3 years...

I'd recommend getting a lawyer. Its like the other people said, if there's a court order you have to do it. If you don't, you can get in trouble.

yes you can but if you want child support then you will have to prove he's the dad with a paternity test if he doesn't believe you. if it goes to court, you might not have a choice so get lawyer.

All good advice. Call a Family Law lawyer from the phone book and ask what they charge for a consultation (first meeting). This is the first step in protecting yourself. Then maybe plan a move.

How about, IF that's his child he has the right to want to be involved in his son/daughter's life and you're just being selfish and bitter?
