    Default Can A Paternity Test Be Wrong?

    My question involves paternity law for the State of:
    My boyfriend had a paternity test done a few months ago. The child, mother and himself were all tested. When he received the results it indicated him as the father 99%. However, we both are confused on one thing. He is not of Causcian background. He is mixed while she is causcian, however on the sheet they compared his DNA to Causcian and she is listed as other. Is there a possibility of misdiagnoses? The Child does not look like him. Help!

    The likihood the test was inaccurate is almost zero! However you are free to spend the money for another test

    Did he inquire with the lab about the incorrect information? What did they tell him?

    Is this a court-ordered test or a voluntary test? Through an accredited lab?

    ... or perhaps the print out does not have the fields formatted to line up correctly. The results would be the same if mom and dad were switched. Dad should call and ask - I doubt they would give g/f info over the phone.

    His lawyer did inquire about it with the lab, they said it makes no difference. However, she did tell her to inquire about it with another lab. The lab is accredited and alot it was a voluntary test. He is likely going to call and ask thank you all for your help. He has been paying child support since the day he found out he was the dad, he recently found out that the mother is not taking care of the child, the child lives and is being raised by someone else. His child support money is not going towards the child, because this other women confirmed she is paying for everything with her money. What should he do, he is in the process of giving her full custody, however now he is reconsidering, but he is in a position of not being able to raise the child. These situations are horrible for the child. So, sad = (

    If he wants another test, he can talk to his lawyer about his paying for a second test and seeing if it confirms the first.
