My son to be ex son-in-law demanded a paternity test on their last child (he's the forth). The baby is now almost 5 months and he has never even made any attempts to see him. Even his mom during the child exchange won't make any eye contact with the baby if my daughter is holding him. Really sad.
He has no reason to doubt its his but he and his lawyer are playing every dirty trick in the book to make the courts think my daughter is a pill popping mentally unstable psychopath.
He has his lawyer convinced that the child isn't his and they DEMANDED the test. It was court ordered. Big mistake on their part, because when he found out the cost he changed his mind but still denied he was the father. Her lawyer reminded them it was a court order that THEY DEMANDED the test. My daughter has no worries, she is 100% positive that he is the father. They wanted half the cost from my daughter. Her lawyer declined, his lawyer shot back with WHEN the test comes back that he ISN'T the father they expect half. Her lawyer more than happily said they would pay.
Her biggest concern is that for some reason his lawyer is setting up the testing which my daughters lawyer told her that he knows the lawyers do not become involved in the lab portion of the testing, he also reminded his lawyer of this. His lawyer is cut throat and is known for winning at any cost. My daughter is afraid that he might possibly compromise the testing. The test will ultimately show that he is the father if used by a reputable lab. This lawyer does NOT and will not lose so of course she's nervous.
Its not paranoia on her part. They've lied about anything and everything even when it came to the sale of the house she found out that it his lawyers GF was handling it. And now with his lawyers insistence of handling the lab she is nervous. I told her to ask her lawyer if he could recommend a lab or to call the court and see if they could. I don't trust his lawyer given his reputation. Her friend told her to buy a Paternity test kit and bring it to the court when they go and have it done in front of the judge. This has been never ending and I am sure that their next court date will be continued with nothing resolved.
