Have you clicked the option on there so it sends you an email as soon as it's turned on?

Probably been factory reset already though, which stops the find my iphone app from working. Same happened to me Cry

Trent wrote: My mate, that I haven't seen in a while, recently got back with his old girlfriend. He had wanted this for a long while beforehand, maybe two years. Just beforehand this, he was making a delivery and ended up having sex with this girl (receptionist/company directors daughter). The next month, when making the delivery, she told him that she was pregnant. This is when he got in touch for advice. She had told him that she had decide to keep it and that she didnt want him to have any part in it. I basically gave him all of his available options but told him the ball was out of his court.

Now he has text saying that she wants him to sign the birth certificate. Obviously, he is reluctant and asked my advice but I'm unsure where he stands legally. He knows very little about her (probably should have considered this at the time but what you going to do?). The stance seems to have changed from having nothing to do with her from this text alone (I know, there could be many reasons for her doing this but it is impossible to know why). If he's not the Father and he signs the birth certificate, will he be made to pay child support? I imagine he would do with the proof that he is the Father but it may be difficult to get out of this later down the line if tests are done afterwards. Nor does he know how he is going to feel later down the line should he not sign it, knowing he will probably never get a chance to know his child?

Basically, I don't need the moral background. It's his option to take but it is particularly the child support that I'm interested in.

Laughing out loud

She's a slut, could be anybody's kid (if she's really pregnant)

The Legal Presumption of Paternity

Until officially declared otherwise, a man is deemed to be a child’s legal father if he is married to the mother at the time of the child’s birth, or if his name is registered on the child’s birth certificate. Additionally, for CSA purposes, if the mother has named a man as father but he has disputed paternity, the CSA is allowed to presume that he is the father if he chose not to provide DNA samples to prove his contention.



Disputed Paternity and the CSA

Even if a man disputes paternity, if he has been named by the mother as the father of her child, he will have to pay child maintenance until DNA tests prove otherwise. The alleged father will initially have to pay for a DNA test (arranged by the CSA) and continue to pay maintenance, all of which will be refunded if the paternity test comes back negative. The ‘parents’ can arrange for a private test themselves (possibly more costly), from the court-approved list of companies, but in many instances a lack of trust and co-operation will mean that this may be difficult.

he'll have to talk to her, £99 quid DNA test is enough (these tests do not stand up in a court of law, just used for paternity matches, i think the courts request on from certain labs ££££), results take less than a week, and if its a match then go on the birth certificate (you have 6 weeks to register a birth)

no need for anything underhand, people just need to talk more

Laughing out loud I said this to him.

So basically she could potentially name him as the Father without his permission, then he would have to dispute this in court? To be fair, I think it's best he sorts it out prior to the birth or whatever but I don't know how I'd feel in his shoes. It sounds like he could be in a no-win situation, if she is intent on asking him to name himself/or name him anyway.

They're both from middle class type backgrounds, so no Jeremy Kyle.
