ANSWER

It is nearly impossible to do because usually men don't think to contest paternity, (she said I was the dad, she wouldn't lie), or they are unaware of the action against them and the time limit in which to contest paternity has passed. Even with about one third of kids having DNA tests turning out to NOT be the biological child of the man, once you are caught in the system even by default, you will pay. There are many cases of men having been picked seemingly at random, then not receiving notice of the pending action and having a default judgment against them. It's not until some time later when they discover that 50% of their paycheck has been garnished and it's too late to fight it. And even if by some miracle, the man is able to get the support stopped, he will NEVER be awarded a refund of money received by a woman. Because, it's not "in the child's best interest."

Answer also: Best thing you can do is find a legal representative and DEMAND a paternity test. I saw on the news a van was going around New York City a few years ago, "Who Is Your Daddy?" taking blood test to establish paternity for the very reason the question is posted.

It depends on the laws in your jurisdiction. You must go through your family court system to legally dis-establish paternity. The difficulty of this type of action varies in different jurisdictions. You need expert advice from an attorney who specializes in family law in your particular jurisdiction and you need to act as soon as possible.
