Quoting FaithLovesBaby:" Can I ask how long all of that took? There's no father listen on the birth certificate, I don't want to get into it but he was abusive and dangerous, so isn't listed."
Oh, I am in no place to judge, trust me - no worries.
After we had the private paternity test done, I had to go to court and have a vacation of paternity done, which took a couple months to get an actual court date. I then had to go to the Child Support place and file for child support under his bio dads name. It took a few weeks to get the paperwork all entered into the system, I guess, but I got a paper in the mail stating I had a court date to establish paternity in a couple of months after that. We went, I had to have my sons mouth swabbed, and it took two weeks for the results. When the reults came back, we had ANOTHER court date about a month later to settle what he would be paying for child support - which he doesn't ever pay.
Honestly - it will probably take a while, but it's mostly just a waiting game between court dates.
