  • if you are sure, then heck yes i would do it!!! you need that money to help support your "baby" girl!!! it takes two to tango. not just one parent should pay for it. they both need to be paying for things, and now that shes getting older she wants more, and needs more. eventually she will start a menstral cycle and thats not cheap now, let alone in a few years!!! i say go for it. and then laugh at him for denying his baby!!!

  • YES! If he denies being the father, he may have to pay for the DNA testing. Contact the child support agency in your state or city. Why let him get out of an obligation? It is your daughters right to get that support.

  • If you apply for any kind of government assistance they will go after him if you point the finger. They will contact child supprort and get a DNA test.
