27. I'm not for unborn trumping mother's, but . . .
In this case, is it not in the child's interest for her mother to be married to her father and not some other guy who has been in prison two years and to whom she has no reason to establish a relationship?

As someone else said, there's nothing to presume here. If the two of them haven't had a conjugal visit since before the kid could possibly be conceived, he ain't the father. Also, what about genetic testing? We've gotten to the point with genetic screening that it should be relatively simple (although, granted, expensive) to prove that the boyfriend is the biological father.

Maybe her lawyer should be starting up a genetic testing fund?
