DNA Testing Father and Child Only

Are you in need of fast accurate and affordable DNA Paternity Testing services specifically for an alleged father and child only? If so, today we will address the most important questions you should know regarding motherless paternity testing.

If an alleged father decides or, is considering to perform a paternity test. The one thing the alleged father should consider is his current relationship with the mother of the child. Will the mother be receptive to you questioning paternity? If so, then the process will be much easier. If not, there are somethings alleged fathers must know before performing a parentage test.

Is it illegal to do a DNA test without consent from the mother?

As we currently understand it, there is no specific law that prevents a person from performing a DNA test without consent for informational purposes. But, If you need a DNA testing result for legal purposes such as for court or a birth certificate name change. Consent for minor children will be required from the guardian.

For example, if the alleged father is not married to the mother and his name is not on the birth certificate. The alleged father of the child will have to request consent from the mother or legal guardian of the child. Without consent, a legal paternity test will not be able to be performed.

It is also important to note that there are times where the alleged father’s names are on the birth certificate and they perform a legal DNA test to be presented in court as evidence without the mother’s knowledge. Please keep in mind the mother’s representation may request a re-test because the mother was unaware of the DNA test which leaves room in her mind that the DNA test you performed may not be legit. So there is a good chance you may have to perform another DNA test.

Finally, you should keep in mind that each state operates differently. It is important that understand your state laws regarding paternity acknowledgment. If for any reason you are unclear about how to acknowledge paternity in your state. We recommend you contact a Family Law attorney in your state or call child services to gain clarity about your state’s paternity establishment laws.
