If the man says he is not the real father, but he missed the 60-day deadline to cancel (rescind) it, he has two years after the baby is born to ask a court to release him from being the legal parent.

The court will probably release the man from his parental obligations if the court

  • receives DNA tests showing he is not the real father, and
  • believes that removing the man as the child’s legal father is best for the child.

Important! After the baby is 2 years old, the man cannot legally challenge his paternity.
