The claim of being a biological father

Nine months ago, your friends and you have had a great time partying in Las Vegas. It was a time full of fun and exciting moments, and you will remember it for a long time as a great experience. At least that of which you can remember, because through your high consumption of alcohol you can’t remember everything that has happened. Now, nine months later, the shock comes, when a woman from Las Vegas unexpectedly contacts you and claims that you are the genetic father of her child that has just been born. What can you do now?

Find out what happened

The first thing you should do now is to find out the missing parts of what happened, which you can’t remember anymore through the high consumption of alcohol. Therefore, ask your friends with whom you have been in Las Vegas for about the information that they can still remember. With this information, try to reconstruct the missing parts and maybe you will have a clearer picture afterwards of what really happened.

Make a choice

After you have found out and reconstructed what really happened, you are now in a position to make a decision of how to proceed. When you are convinced that you really are not the father of the child, then you might want to take a different approach to when you are not certain, and you think that it could be true that you really are the father.

Taking a paternity test

Depending on the strategy of how to proceed, taking a paternity test at home might be the right way forward for you. In either case, if you are certain that you are not the father, or if you are uncertain, taking this paternity test can be helpful. If you are convinced that you are not the father, you can prove this through the test, and the mother of the child might stop insisting on her claims. But also when you are uncertain if you really are the father or not, taking a test can prevent the mother from taking the next steps, for example by taking the issue to court. If the test shows that you are not the father, then you will have saved yourself a lot of stress in comparison to when the woman would have started a court case. However, it might also turn out that you really are the father, and then you will have to deal with the consequences of your actions.
