What if the presumed father is not the child’s genetic father?
A presumed father is recognized by law as the child’s legal father unless:
- he signs a Denial of Paternity and the true genetic father (and mother) sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity - or -
- a court orders that he is not the legal father.
If the presumed father is willing to sign a Denial of Paternity and the child’s genetic father and mother are willing to sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity, call the Office of the Attorney General at 1-866-255-2006 to find out where to go for help completing the appropriate forms.
