Isn't that basically what my first sentence said? "Bro if you don't opt for a DNA test and she says you're the father, then you pay."
You first response sounded like if you don't do the test, requested by the girl, you're on the hook. She needs to go to court and have the courts order that. The courts need her to present a case where there's beyond a reasonable doubt that you're the father before they're order the paternity test. Essentially, if you have a one night stand with a chick, get her pregnant, and she can't find you, it will be very difficult for the courts to put you on the hook even if the chick knows who you are.

30% of 6.9 million is a hell of a lot of people.
thats 2.3 million single PARENTS - lets assume the national average of 2.5 children per parent that makes 5 750 000 children who are not supported by child support payments.
That's a bad assumption. Single parents include parents who are divorced, widowed, and unintended pregnancy. Child support payments are mandatory in a divorce or you end up in jail, or you'll end up as a police dodger all your life. Widowhood is a legitimate reason not to be receiving child support. Unintended pregnancies may partially support your postulation as one reason for children not supported by child support payments. But using the national average to calculate this number is unreasonable. If a woman gets pregnant by a irresponsible man once, she's cheated, so shame on him. Woman like this are very defensive and have their guard up when they look for a second guy, if they ever get a second guy with that baggage she's now got, but assume she gets hooked up and has a second kid and the guy runs away, she's cheated yet again, shame on him. But if you use your assumption of 2.5 kids, she's having more than 2 kids, meaning she's on her third guy and still gets dumped. She's obviously not doing her due d properly or she's just a wh*re. This time, shame on her!
