DNA is an important piece of evidence in child support and child custody cases. Without evidence of a child’s father, it’s not possible to hold him accountable for child support. Additionally, fathers without paternity rights may struggle to get enough time with their children, if they’re able to see their children at all.
DNA is an important part of cases because it shows, close to without a doubt, who the father of the child is. If there is a question as to whether or not you are the parent of a child, this test clears up any concerns. DNA makes the difference between being a part of your child’s life or having to go without being part of it.
Why get a DNA test?
At the core, realize that people have the potential to lie. A mother may claim you’re not the father when you are. She may also claim you are a father when you’re not. It’s a good idea to get a DNA test unless you’re absolutely certain you’re the father. The DNA test won’t lie, and it gives you peace of mind.
What if the mother won’t agree to a DNA test?
The court can seek the DNA test. If the court orders her to comply, she needs to participate in the test or could be found in contempt of court.
DNA is vital. If there is any question about the father of a child you believe is yours, take the time to seek a DNA test. It’s easy to do, painless and removes all questions about whether or not the child is yours. Our site has more information.
