correct. There are very specific rules as to the process so just like evidence to a criminal trial, the chain of possession can be very controlled to remove the possibility of s contaminated or substituted sample. The state also uses only labs they have certified as dependable.
AllisonB32;541609]So the DNA test that was done cannot be used although it is legal test and will hold up in court?
not sure without looking but probably. The "wrong" father can also file to have that paternity disestablished as well but that would not establish your son as father.
Can the mother or my son file a petition in chancery court?
the "wrong" fathers name cannot be removed until it is proven he is the wrong father. Once that happens, the BC can be amended using the court order determining him to not be the father and filing the proper paperwork with the office that maintains birth certificates.
Can legitimation or filitation paperwork be filed with a petition with chancery court to have the wrong father's name removed from the birth certificate?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
