Hello and thanks for this forum. My girlfriend just told me she's pregnant. I want to do the right thing but I'm not sure if this the right relationship for me. Frankly, I'm also not sure if the child is mine. We've only been seeing each other exclusively for a few weeks. I also remember reading a story about some dude in another state who was forced to pay child support even though the kid wasn't his. When I tried to talk about this with my girlfriend we pretty much broke up. Now she wants me to sign a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity. Can you tell me about that case and how to deal with this issue? Obviously I don't want to pay child support if the kid is not mine.
