Quoting Is that still my name?:" NO there isn't... I have been weighing the pros and cons of getting one. If I just cancel the child ... [snip!] ... then I know he will just disappear. But I still want documentation to prevent his mother from sturring up further trouble."
IDK mama, I was told for my state they try to make you work it out between yourselves first, then the judge will make a decision if that doesn't work.
I wish you the best of luck! I know how sucky it is when you know they're only around because CS caught up with them, etc (happens to me EVERY TIME... I get a check (surprise!) and a week later and delightful phone call..)
