Is there a chance its not mine? Yes, there is a chance. But there is more evidence pointing to its mine, than not. And upon winning the custody case, one of the things that was established was me being the child's father. My name is on the birth certificate.
That makes me cringe. A test is about $400. I'm not sure what level of testing that the courts need, but you can find out one way or the other for much cheaper than $1,000.
I'm not sure if you're afraid of the answer, but it is something that you should know. If the child isn't yours, you can still raise the child and not tell anybody that you had the test done.
