If a paternity test come back positive does the dad name go on the birthcertificate

Q: This girl want a paternity test for a baby I never knew about and she gave my baby my last name i didn’t even sign the birth certificate can she do that?

A: No, not necessarily. It depends on whether the test is done in the court or not – if it is, then generally the court will enter an order of filiation, meaning you’ll be declared the legal father of the child. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
