Know For Certain With A Paternity DNA Test

With the breakdown of many families there is a greater need to establish paternity for children. It’s no secret that the court system has increasingly gone after dead beat dads who aren’t supporting their children. This is as it should be.

The problem however is that often in relationships that have gone bad, claims of paternity and demands for child support are made on the latest most convenient male partner who may or may not be the actual father. Once this type of claim is made, it becomes a big issue for the man especially if he’s not the legitimate father of the child.

And the risks are high. The courts have demanded child support payments from fathers, even to the point of impoverishment. Failing to make the demanded court ordered child support payments can also result in many penalties, not the least of which is garnishment of wages to pay support. In addition however, all tax returns can be withheld and even a drivers license renewal can be refused by the state to dads who are behind on child support, not to mention that the state can suspend your current drivers license.

Another aspect of paternity is what about a father who is not afforded his rights to be with his child because the mother has claimed the child isn’t his? This is a case where a paternity DNA test can establish if the man is the legitimate father depending on the type of test the father or mother can use this test to gain custody or visitation of their children

It’s not the intent of this article to take sides one way or the other on this matter. The facts are that having a child obligates the parents to care for that child. So the ramifications of being identified as fathering a child can have serious and long lasting effects on the life of a man.

If you father children, it’s your responsibility to care for them. If they’re yours, you should also have the right to be involved in their lives.

But what if you’re not the father? Why should a man be obligated to support children who are not biologically his?

This is where a DNA paternity test can help. DNA test are simple and accurate.  DNA tests are inexpensive and offer significant peace of mind for the parents. They are accurate to at least 99.9% positive that you are the father but are also 100% accurate in establishing you are NOT the father of the child.

Although it’s ideal to have the mother, child and the claimed father tested, the dna testing method does not require the mother to be involved to obtain an accurate test.

It’s a sad day when claims of fatherhood are made with such dire consequences for all concerned. Using a paternity DNA test can establish your rights and obligation to a child one way or the other.  If you are planning on using the results to challenging paternity, change birth certificates or for any other legal purpose you should contact the company and verify that their test can be used in court.  Home DNA test typically are not court admissible.

    I am wondering, since I am 50 years old and my alleged father (80 Yeasrs old) has never acknowledge me because my mother was married to another man. How can I get him to take a DNA Test?

    Hello Darla,

    I am sorry but the only way to make someone take a DNA test is with a court order. There are other options for testing. You could use what are called Non-Standard Samples for the alleged father. Some of the best options are: nail clippings, toothbrush, ear wax or dirty tissues. Please contact us directly to discuss your situation further.
