Paternity Testing and Your Rights Shepherdsville Louisville | Wantland Law Wantland Law » Paternity


The court, upon request of a party or on its own motion, shall order the mother, child, and alleged father to submit to genetic tests. If the mother refuses for herself or on behalf of the child to submit to the tests, the court may resolve the question of paternity against her unless the action is brought by or is being prosecuted by an agency contributing to the support of the child.

The determination of paternity shall be commenced within eighteen years after the birth, miscarriage or stillbirth of a child. However, in such cases, liability for child support shall not predate the initiation of action taken to determine paternity if the action is taken four years or more from the date of birth. Any person for whom paternity has not yet been established and who had not reached eighteen years of age as of August 16, 1984, including those persons for whom a paternity action was brought but dismissed because a statute of limitations of less than eighteen years was then in effect, may bring an action to establish paternity.

If you are not receiving child support because the father has not been proved call WANTLAND LAW, PLLC and we will get you the money you deserve. Controversially, if someone is alleging or presuming you to be the father of their child call us and we will protect your rights.
