When you are requested by the state of North Carolina, or your ex spouse, to pay child support you must immediatley request a paternity test to establish the child is not yours.
I am sorry to hear that you had this situation affect you, but I am sure you can understand how the child feels. Just make sure that you do not push the child away due to their biological genes if you still love them. Best of luck.
