Court-Ordered Paternity tests, Who pays for a DNA test in court?

Court Ordered DNA Test. Who Pays For It? There are only two options in which the parties involved have to choose from. One, if the parties involved choose to perform a paternity test privately. Meaning they will pay out of pocket. 

Second, if the parties involved decide to settle their paternity issue through the courts. If the second option is your choice. Then it is  important to note. Normally, a Judge decides whether the parties involved need the assistance of the state. If the alleged father is unable to pay for a paternity test during the court proceeding. The court may opt to have the state pay for your DNA test. But, in most states, the petitioning party will have to reimburse the state. We recommend seeking a family law professional in your state to inquire about whether the court will provide non-reimbursement DNA testing services.
