Can I refuse to take a paternity test?

My daughter’s mother wants me to take a paternity test even though my daughter is 5 and I’ve been in her life since the day she was born. I’m pretty sure she’s mine but what if I take the test and she isn’t? Would I still have rights to visitation with her? I think my ex is doing this now because she recently asked me to pay more child support and I told her I couldn’t. I just can’t afford more right now. She’s mad and I think she’s trying to get back at me. Can I refuse to take the test on the basis that my daughter only knows me as her Dad and I don’t care what the test says, I am her father? If I have to take the test and she isn’t mine, can my ex still come after me for more child support?

Can we get a marital agreement without a divorce?

After 8 years of marriage my husband and I want to get a trial separation. We are both Jewish and our families are strongly discouraging a divorce. We want to try counseling with our Rabbi and avoid a divorce, but that might not be possible. Can we have a separation agreement that states what each of us will pay and be responsible for in our home and continue to live together in separate bedrooms? Would such an agreement be valid? We live in Sacramento and we both travel a lot for work so often we aren’t sleeping in the same house anyway but there are times when we do.
