You must assert your rights when it comes to children and most other legal issues. You need to respond to the petition and have a dna test of you and the child during the course of the proceeding. No action on your part may cause you to forfeit your parental rights. 

You did not say whether there is a petition for guardianship or adoption. Either way, you msut respond. I suggest you seek the help of a lawyer.

Child Custody
Your children are precious, and issues of child custody shouldn't be treated casually. Even the most amicable splits and custody agreements should be negotiated with the assistance of child custody attorneys and approved by the courts. Once a judge has approved the agreement, changes in custody or visitation, as well as enforcement of child custody agreements, should be handled with the assistance of your lawyer. Child custody law firms can also work with grandparents and other parties other than parents who are seeking custody of a child.
