Can a biological father after 9 years claim rights ?

Q: I never told the biological father about the child he found out recently but also the court declared my ex as the father. Can he still take me to court and fight for rights?

A: You’d appear to have a valid defense of “equitable estoppel” of the biological father now attempts to assert paternity. If his name wasn’t on the birth certificate, then he’d have a hard case to prove. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
