My fiance and i have a 9 month old son. We just found out in January that we are going to have another baby. I got pregnant with my son in September of 2007 and he was born on may 30, 2008. My due date was actually June 9, 2008. Me and my fiance broke up in mid july 2007 and got back together in mid August 2007. During the time we were broke up he had a one time fling with an ex girlfriend. She found out she was pregnant in october 2007 and i found out i was pregnant 3 days later.She started calling him and telling him that she was pregnant and thought it was his. This lasted about 3 months and then she stopped. She got with an ex boyfriend of hers that she had been with around the same time and started telling him that the baby was his. She wouldnt ever tell anyone her due date until april 2008 and she told everyone her due date was June 1, 2008. This guy had been raising her baby with her and now they have broken up and she is telling people the baby is my fiance's. She also met with another guy she had been with and told him that she thinks the baby is his. She will not have a dna test done. How would i go about getting a dna test done if the mother is unwilling. He wants to be there for the baby if it is his but he wants to know so that if its not then she cant keep saying that it is? help me please!?

If she is saying the baby is his, he has the legal right to challenge her claim. If she is looking for him to support that child, then she has to agree to a DNA test. Simple as that. If he is not found to be the father, he is NOT legally liable for the baby. If she is not looking for him to support the baby, then the paternity test will not be as much of a priority. You can still get it done. Your fiance will need to go to court and request one on the grounds that it might be his and that she is saying it might be his and he wants parental rights (visitation, etc)if it is his child. Legally, if he even thinks he is the father, he has the right to at least get proof or disproof of her claim. I would advise you to seek out a lawyer specializing in Paternity/DNA/Family law. They will often do free consultations. Find a reputable one though.
