My ex is due her baby next month and I believe I'm the father of the kid, I try to make contact with her but she ignoring me , I want to know if the baby mine and want to take parental responsibility from the baby if proven mine ,
Assistant: What steps has your ex taken? Has she filed any papers in family court?
Customer: Dunno think she used me for a kid
Assistant: Family Court normally sits in a local County and Magistrates' Court. Do you know the location of the court? If not, what county does your ex live in?
Customer: She lives in Polegate , East Sussex
Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: If proven mine can I contest the birth certificate

Let me see if I can help. If she is refusing to contact you then you should get a solicitor to write to her indicating that you want a DNA test and to be recorded on the birth certificate. There is little you can do other than that until the child is born. You can then immediately apply to the court for a DNA test (if this is not done before and by consent), for parental responsibility and also to spend time with the child. This is all done on a form C100. I have also to help you attached a link to a great book which explains the court process - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X

Happy to discuss and please rate 5 stars for my time.
