Paternity Testing Before a Baby is Born
Prenatal Paternity Testing
Prenatal means existing or occurring before birth. Prenatal DNA testing is usually not a good idea due to the potential harm to the mother and child. There are two ways to accomplish prenatal testing.
If prenatal testing is required and ordered, the kit will include collection swabs for the mother’s and the alleged father’s sample. This price does not include the OB/GYN’s fees, which are handled by the customer or the customer’s insurance company.

PUTATIVE FATHER -- In many states, the husband of a married woman who bears a child is automatically presumed to be the father. This presumption of paternity makes him the putative father. Some jurisdictions take the presumption of paternity one step further by not allowing a man to disprove biological paternity through DNA. As a result men who are not the biological fathers of their wife’s children are forced to pay child support for children they have not biologically fathered.
