I Think My Brother Is The Father Of My Child

by Scott
(Louisiana)

I took a paternity test that came back 96% I was the father. Problem is the boy could be my nieces brother. They even look like brother and sister when you look at them and their features. It's strange to me because my brother is only a half brother and I can't see that much resemblance between the children and none between us except that we share a mother. There are no similar features between us. I just can't prove that the mother and my brother were intimate but it's too much of a coincidence and I don't know how to go about having him tested for paternity without possibly hurting the child involved by questioning whether or not I'm the father.

child support payments
by: Scott

Yes, I am and getting screwed. I've paid more than twice my monthly obligation for two years now, every month. They've also kept my state and federal taxes for 3 years and are saying I'm behind still. My wife figured all my payroll deductions (with taxes witheld) since the date the order went into effect versus what they say they got and I owe and I'm thousands of dollars overpaid.

Get tested

Our advice is to get a paternity test done. It's only fair for you and the child to know who the real father is.

test
by: Scott

I realize that it's only fair but I doubt my brother would willingly submit to the test. Can you tell me how I would go about getting the child support agency or the courts to order the test? As it is right now, they are satisfied with me at 96%.

96 percent

96 percent seems very convincing. It's going to be hard to top that.
