What If He Denies He Is The Father, Or Says He's Not Sure?

Paternity may be determined after genetic tests are given to the mother, the child and the alleged father. Test results are available in approximately four to eight weeks. The tests exclude men who are not the father and indicate the likelihood of paternity of a man who is not excluded. Genetic tests are very reliable, which is why so few paternity cases go to trial.
