Can I get genetic testing done to see who the father is?
In many parentage cases, the court will order genetic tests and when the Prosecutor's Office is handling the parentage action, there is no cost to the parties. However, if the parties get their own genetic testing done before the court orders it, those results may not be considered by the court. In some situations, genetic testing will not be allowed. Results of genetic tests done by the Prosecutor's Office will not be given over the phone and are sent by mail 2-4 weeks after the tests are administered.
