Paternity Testing Before Birth

Paternity Testing Before Birth

A maternity or paternity identification test is conducted to establish whether a person is the biological parent of another person. A test to prove paternity (whether a man is someone's father) is known as a paternity test; a test to prove maternity (whether a woman is someone's mother) is called a maternity test.

Although paternity tests are more common than maternity tests, there may be circumstances in which the biological mother of the child is unclear. Examples include cases of an adopted child attempting to reunify with his or her biological mother, potential hospital mix-ups, and in vitro fertilization where the laboratory may have implanted an unrelated embryo inside the mother.

Paternity fraud
Paternity fraud
Paternity fraud is the act of falsely naming a man to be the biological father of a child, particularly for the purpose of collecting child financial support (also referred to as child maintenance), by the mother when she knows or suspects that he is not the biological father.
Paternity Fraud and Parental Rights
In most Western Countries there is a short window for a man to challenge paternity claims, and, in case of marriage, the law automatically assumes that the child is the huband's. Critics claim this rewards and encourages the perpetrators of paternity fraud leaving men defenseless. The male spouse may be victimized even after the relationship has ended through the child support enforcement system. Government agencies responsible for the integrity of birth records accept birth registration forms without paternity testing. In some countries a duped husband may incur the responsibility of fatherhood and sign the birth registration forms believing that he is the biological father of the child. In doing so, in some countries, he becomes legally liable for life for the child even when it is proven with DNA evidence later that he is not the biological father of the child and was deceived by the mother.
