This Week’s Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

Mario D. Bellissimo’s Answer:

A: You might be in for a tough road ahead. Your husband recognized he was the father when he placed his name on his/her birth certificate. Legally, the child is his, without a DNA test he has admitted paternity.  A DNA test may confirm that he is not the biological father but legally he is the child’s father.  Therefore, irrespective of tests, he should have included the child on his application, as a “non-accompanying” dependant.  Regrettably by not including child on his application he is permanently banned from sponsoring the child.  You definitely require professional help to explore what other options may exist. Good luck!
