Section 4, Chapter 11 (Administrative Activities), Subsection 4 – Paternity Testing

Effective Date:  5-1-19


In most instances Family Support Division will be able to schedule and pay for genetic parentage testing. However, FSD will not schedule or pay for testing when the legal paternity of a child has been established.

When CD requests or is court ordered to seek a genetic test and FSD is not able to schedule or pay for genetic testing, CD will be responsible for scheduling the test. In these cases, CD staff should work directly with the assigned CD Regional Liaison.

For detailed instructions on the procedures to complete paternity testing, refer to Section 8, Chapter 7 of this manual.
