Who’s Your Daddy? Dna Testing In Court!!

DNA testing in Court: The question of a child’s paternity is a matter that commonly arises in Family Law disputes. Refusing to participate in a court ordered DNA test is held to be a deemed failure of the test that results in a finding that the man is the father.

While a simple DNA test can shed light on the identity of a child’s biological father, there are of course other issues that need to be considered, including the payment of child support to the child’s mother.

If you discover that you have paid child support to a mother, and have subsequently found out that you are not the child’s biological father, the law allows you to apply to the Court for the child’s mother to repay those child support payments to you.
