Greetings. Tell your fiance (who you may want to check into a little more before marrying him) to go and turn himself in to have a DNA test. Why would he not want the test to clear this whole thing up. He would have had to make the request for a DNA test anyway, as the woman filing the action would not have requested it.
Something does not sound right to me, but it sounds like he is not giving you all the information. I have not heard of the police forcing anyone to have a DNA test or putting someone in jail for not complying.
Of course if it took her 8 years to need the child support or to find your fiance, that may be why she waited.
Here is my suggestion. First, call the woman…ask her what she wants, to meet, to make sure she has the right man. If she does have the right man…well, you will have a lot of thinking to do. If she does not, she will dismiss the lawsuit against him. Best of luck.
