Legal DNA Test For Child Support | Law Offices of Charles R. Gueli
If you are a doubtful father, how will you see to it that the claims of the other party are true so you may be willing to give support to the kids? The answer to that should be a settlement. Often, the legal DNA test is enough to settle any argument. However, the processes are different. For one, there are some fathers who do not really demand much or do not doubt the matter at all. The most common situation occurs when after a long time of being together, the parents decided to call their relationship quits. With that, especially if the issue does not really tackle infidelity, the father is [more...]

NY Times talks "Baby Daddy" bill
The law that (Carnell) Smith helped to pass in Georgia, like a similar one in Ohio, sets no time limit on using DNA to challenge paternity. The premise is that a man shouldn’t be punished for entering a paternal relationship that he would have avoided had he known the truth. It is, Smith says, a correction to a double standard that allows mothers and caseworkers to use DNA to prove paternity but prohibits men from using that same evidence to escape its obligations. But child-welfare experts counter that a child shouldn’t be punished by losing the only father she has ever known — or the [more...]

How DNA is Used in Paternity Testing?
Recently, companies have begun selling DNA paternity tests over the counter at drug stores, which facilitates home testing. However, results are usually inadmissible in court due to the chance of surreptitious DNA collection or false identification of the tested individuals. The legality of testing another person’s DNA without their consent varies by state. If a paternity test is to be used in a court of law, chain of custody of the DNA sample must be verified. This means that every step of the paternity testing process and analysis is documented, from the collection of the DNA sample by an [more...]
