Hi, thank you for your question. Who administered and undertook the first DNA test?
Thank you for confirming. In the circumstances you can request the detailed report from Cellmark, however, if your GP followed the procedure for obtaining your DNA correctly, as well as the evidential procedure when passing the DNA test to Cellmark, the DNA test cannot be challenged and the mother can continue to rely on it.
I appreciate that this may not be the answer you would have hoped for but if you found my information provided helpful please could you rate my response positively using the stars at the top of this page as I will not be credited for my response without a positive rating.
Thank you. In the circumstances, and despite what the mother is saying, you will need to apply to court for a declaration of parentage - the form is here: http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/HMCTS/GetForm.do?court_forms_id=2631
The court fee is £365 and you need to submit the form to the child's local family court.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
