Hi, thank you for your question. Who is seeking the testing and for what purpose?
Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.
In order to obtain Court Order for a DNA test someone would have to show that there was a good reason for them to seek it.
This could be a belief that they are the father of the child (or grandparents if the father has died)
So whilst anyone can demand you do one - only someone with a good ground to believe they are related could force the issue.
If they did apply for a Declaration of Parentage and the DNA test s refused then the Court can simply assume that the person applying is indeed the father!
Please ask if you need further details
I have to ask - are you certain that the baby is your partner's?
So agreeing to a Paternity test would not be a problem?
You do not have to agree - it will then be up to your ex if he chooses to spend money on a Court application if he wishes to do so.
If he says that he was your previous partnet this is likely to be good enough for a test to be ordered
If he does then of course you will have to tell your partner about the harassment - and the DNA test will show that you are telling the truth and he is not
If you need more informtaion them please ask
