Should I get a DNA test for my baby?

Hi, so I and ex have broken up, and we have a six-month-old together he’s saying unless I have DNA test we won’t be seeing him as he as doubts that he is his. Over two years ago I did delete messages from another guy who is just a friend but now this guy messages again (whilst baby is in hospital, he was only asking how I was doing) my ex sees it and is now demanding I do a DNA test, I have refused as it’s over 100 and I hadn’t that sort of money but cause of the deleting messages two years ago and him popping up now he says that it may be his baby, other stuff has happened and its been on-off relationship the whole three years. Sometimes very toxic and police called no trust on either side really Should I do the test or not??

Just do it so you can shove it in his dumb face

If you want him involved take him to court, they’ll do the DNA set up child support, and custody. If not leave it alone.

Sounds like you have a chance to dodge a bullet here.
Let him walk. Honestly. It’s easier to have him uninvolved then trying to force participation out of him.

Personally, I wouldn’t test. Just do your best, raise that baby and cross that bridge when and if it comes. Sounds like a DNA would lead to more BS and court matters. If you WANT him around then do it, but otherwise it doesn’t sound like he wants to be a dad.

You can buy cheaper dna tests at CVS

He has every right to ask for a DNA test. Especially since you two were on and off.

Your child deserves the support from both parents. File for child support against him, the state will do the test

He wants a dna he pays simple as that

I would have the DNA test to get child support and move on. Sounds like he is a manipulating B-----d that is an insecure control freak. Dump him, but get the DNA test first.

File for child support. They will pay for the dna and when its shown he is the father he will be ordered to pay child support. Who needs a guy who doesnt believe its his anyhow!

Yes get a DNA test and go for child support.

Just take it so he’ll shut up if you’re so sure its his then who cares

He doesn’t want to be in that babies life. Why get a test and go through hell for the same outcome. Did he sign the birth certificate? Tell him to sign his rights away if that’s how he feels. You get that test you think he’s gonna be satisfied and stop? No. It usually only gets worse.

I just let the court system handle it. Didn’t have to lift a finger other than to show up for the DNA test. Now he’s mad and on child support & he did it to himself
