I AM a guy aged 19. I fell in love with a girl aged 17. The problem was that I was not her only boyfriend, she had many.
When I realised this I suggested that it would be better for us to separate and she agreed.
Two weeks later she came to me and said she was expecting my baby.
How do I know I am the father, because she had other boyfriends?

Blood tests are used to prove paternity.
There is no law that says a person can be forced to undergo a blood test.
A mother can refuse to subject her child to a blood test in order to determine who the father is.
But if she alleges that a particular man is the father of the child she will have to prove it.
It is in her own interests to take the child for the relevant blood test so that a paternity test can be carried out.
If she refuses to subject the child to a blood test the person she claims is the father can simply deny the allegation and challenge her to prove it.
