Refusing the DNA Test
Most states do give the Court authority to compel an Alleged Father to submit to DNA testing in order to assist in establishing Paternity. You can be found in civil contempt for refusal to obey a court order. This may lead to a fine and/or jail time.
Paternity may even be established by default when the putative father fails to attend a court hearing or go for testing after he was properly served with notice. Paternity can also be established in some states by publication of the putative father’s name in the newspaper. Check with an attorney in your state about what happens if you refuse to take the test.
It may be easier for the Alleged Father to consent to the DNA Test or seek out Paternity testing on his own in order to conclude the matter with minimal time and expense. http://fast-dna-paternity-testing.com/paternity-test.html Health-Link can coordinate and perform legally admissible DNA Testing by calling 888-712-9639.
