Challenging Paternity

Even with the proven accuracy of DNA testing, it is possible, though improbable, that the results are incorrect. Some of the grounds for challenging a paternity determination include:

  • Tainted lab results (e.g., evidence of prior errors in lab results and routinely substandard work)
  • Fraudulent lab results (e.g., evidence that the opposing party sent someone else to take the lab test on his behalf)
  • Proof of infertility/sterility
  • Proof that test results were tampered with
