Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first

When was the baby born and when was the DNA test with the other man done?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi the baby is due 19th November the test will be done with the other man after that time
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

There is nothing that you can do until the baby is born in November

Once the baby is born then you can apply to the court for a Child Arrangement Order and within that applictaion ask for a DNA test.

You should try and discuss this with her first using Family Mediation

You have to attend a Mediation Informtaion and Assessment meeting yourself before any court applictaion - so arrange that for early October

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details

is that meeting just for me ?
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

The MIAM is just you - but if your ex agrees to Mediation then the following meetings will be joint
