Thank you for your question.

I am afraid if his ex really is pregnant and she does keep the baby then your son will be liable for child maintenance (assuming of course that the child is his)
He will have to pay 12% of his Gross Income at most - but should definitely take the opportunity to pay for a DNA test when it is offered
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
