Under certain circumstances under the law and after there is a hearing and a court order with respect to the taking of a DNA sample from you, there is the possibility that you could be ordered to submit to a DNA test. If you are subject to such an inquiry and do not want to submit to such a test, I suggest that you consult with a family law attorney to represent you in opposing the request.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
