    Child support is already filed and being payed. But suspicions it's not the father's child... how does he go about getting a DNA test through attorney general? Can't do a home DNA test because she keeps the child away. He knows he can report her and stuff but not able to due to living situations and current issues dealing with. It's sounds horrible it's just a long crazy story.

    Depending on the state and how old the child is, it is more than likely too late to do anything about a DNA test. Should have asked for one before the child support order was put in place.

    If a court has ordered child support, then the court has made a determination that the father is the father. Depending on how long ago child support was ordered and the laws of the unidentified state where this happened, it may be too late to do anything about it now.

    A "DNA test through [the] attorney general"? Why would the attorney general have anything to do with this? If the father wants a court ordered paternity test, then it is axiomatic that he needs to seek a court order.

    What state? How old is the child? How old was the child when the court order for support was passed? Why do you suddenly now question paternity? Were you and the mother ever married?
