HB 344: Paternity; parties beyond movants in a child support case request a genetic test; allowVoted on Wednesday March 1, 2017
John Pezold's thoughts
This legislation allows either party to apply for a paternity test when battling a child support order.
The bill also allows the Dept. of Human Services to deny a request for genetic testing in a case where there is an underlying child support order. The Dept. can deny if there was a test that was already completed, if the child has been adopted, if the child was conceived via artificial insemination or if the Dept. of Human Services previously offered a paternity test and the person now requesting denied it.
