If the mother to a child denies knowing who the father is to child support how does child support establish?

paternity? the mom is on welfare/ebt cash assistance right now and the state want backpay from the dad (me) for that assistance which is why she is in the child support system and why they are contacting her. her is the situation...The babys mom wants to be the only person in my sons life. she does not want me on the birth cirtificate and does not want child support; because then i would have rights to see my son (etc).I just found out she lied to child support saying that she does not know who the father is. She has told me and my whole family I am the father. how does the state go about establishing paternity (to get child support) in this situation? i am curious how the state handles this NOT what i need to do to remedy this. thanks
