Note: Attorney Kiefer and O’Shea several years ago successful reopened a judgment of divorce, had the court
make a finding that the presumed father was not the father of a 12 year old girl, had the court erase an
arrearge of $4,000.00 and had the court order the mother to pay back $9,000.00 in child support collected by
her failure to identify the father.
"The court today, with the use of DNA testing, does
not have to have the wisdom of King Solomon to determine who the biological father
There is nothing more outrageous in today jurisprudence that paternity fraud which requires the victim to pay thousands of dollars to the perpetrator of fraud; a system which
places efficiency of injustice over the inefficiency of justice; and hides in failure to do justice under the
herbage of "best interests of the child."

Proposition Two: Never depend on discovery to build a case because you

To succeed in trial you must:

ESSENTIAL STEPS TO TAKE:
1. PROVE, THROUGH COMPETENT MEDICAL TESTING THAT YOU ARE NOT THE FATHER.
This means that you are able to take the child for a mouth swab for saliva/cheek cells which,
together with your DNA can establish whether you are the biological father or not. The DNA test no longer requires
both parents; nor does it only require blood to be drawn.
You cannot provide it by statements of your ex-wife because at the last minute she will deny
saying it. You need DNA evidence.
