Paternity Test - Be Sure BeforeYou Start Paying Child Support

You have probably heard the saying that life sometimes does not go as planned. Well as many young adults have found, sometimes life comes without a plan-especially when sex is involved. The costs associated with child support can be astronomical.

Paternity Testing for Child Custody

As a family law attorney, I occasionally encounter child custody cases in which paternity is a crucial issue. In Pennsylvania, paternity is defined as the state or quality of being a father. If a mother, potential father, or child wishes to have a paternity test conducted, he or she may petition the Court to have the test administered. Traditionally, a simple cotton swab test is conducted and DNA is taken from both father and child.

PATERNITY BY ESTOPPEL: DNA MIGHT NOT MATTER

So you just found out that you have a child you did not know anything about! She's 5 years old, you have never seen her, but the lady you slept with 5 years and 9 months ago says "she's yours". She goes on to tell you that she's married, has been for almost 5 years and her present husband has treated the child "like his own". But, now she wants you to pay child support because she figures you make more than her husband.
