There is no way he should sign an AOP. Rather a DNA test should be done to prove that he is the father. You waited over 15 years to tell your daughter the truth? In other words you were lying to her for that amount of time? Why would you do that? Why would you think that is in the best interest of the child? Why would dad take your word that he is dad when you would LIE to your child? If I were dad I would definitely not sign an AOP nor would I continue to support this child unless she were living with me due to the fact that I would nto be sure she is legally mine. If she were living with me I would then be willing to pay for her food and clothing as she would be with me. But without a court order I would not be sending money ANYWHERE for her support.
Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.
