Will I need to collect a sample from my wife for this test, or can I just use mine and the baby’s? If he does make a legal motion, it’s up to the court whether or not they think it’s in your child’s best interest to order a test. If she really is my child, I want to be part of her life and help her through her education and whatever she may need.

The problem is this child is actually in foster care because the mother and the supposed father are now both full on drug addicts, and the supposed father won’t get the DNA test done because he is scared of losing this kid that he isn’t even looking after and doesn’t seem to care for, and my partner is trying to let bygones be bygones, but it niggles at me every day because if this child is my partners, I want her to come home, I want to be her mum, and I want her to know her sister, and soon to be sibling..
