    You won't get s paternity test until after the child is born. You can get help with this through social services.

    In any future posts, please make an effort to use something that resembles proper capitalization and punctuation. Doing so will make it easier for others to read and understand what you write.

    Just to be clear, I assume your certainty regarding this man's paternity is a result of him being your only sexual partner around the time of conception. Correct?

    You can if you have samples of the alleged father's DNA and want to spend the money. It would be a lot cheaper to wait until the child is born.

    Read this.

    And who exactly do you think should be paying for this and why?
