Do I have to take a DNA test to establish paternity?

  • By: Andrew Merlo

Not necessarily. If both the mother and father agree on paternity, then genetic testing is not necessary. If either party does doubt the genetic paternity of the child, then the court will order a DNA test prior to establishing parental rights.
