Q: letterfromchild support saying there not requesting dna test anymore bc he signed paternity papers saying he is the dad
But they want us to come to court to vacate order of dna test will be called up for a hearing before district court .. what will happen this day? Never been in this situation before so I’m confused
A: It is common for the child support attorney to file a motion for DNA paternity testing when there is a question of paternity in a child support case and paternity hasn't been legally established. Once a person signs a notarized acknowledgement of paternity to have the father's name added to the birth certificate, then there is now a legal presumption of paternity. Once there is this legal presumption of paternity, then there is no longer the need for the DNA paternity test for the child support attorney to establish paternity and child support.
If the child support attorney wants the court to cancel the order for DNA paternity testing, the child support attorney could file a motion to vacate, and thus cancel, the order that the parties submit to DNA paternity testing.
If you have a question about your child support case, you can call the child support office to ask questions.
