Frequently Asked Questions

Question
Can the court force me to take a paternity test? What if I refuse?

Answer
Yes, the court can and will force you to take a paternity test in order to determine parentage, mainly for the purposes of establishing an order for child support.

If you refuse to take a paternity test (as ordered by a judge), you may be charged with contempt of court.
