Can Paperwork Be Filed To Establish Paternity While The Mother Is Pregnant, Before The Child Is Born?

Yes. The paperwork may be filed during the pregnancy. If the alleged father denies that he is the father, paternity can be determined by blood tests after the child is born. Arrangements for the blood test can be made with your doctor, or genetic tests can be done through the FSD or local child support agency.
