Old Hickory, TN asked in Family Law, Child Custody and Child Support for Kentucky

Q: father of child not on birth certificate He requested dna test When come back his will I start getting child support?

He’s only seen her once when she was 3 days old for one hour. She’s now 4mo old. We made and agreed to our own schedule when she was 3 days old then he never showed on the day to visit.. haven’t heard from him sense until now when the child support called me saying he wants test. Why do you think he’s doing this? Will they back date child support once it comes back his? And will he be put on birth certificate and will he have rights?
