#2 Answer is some States are UNAWARE of the magnitude
of the problem. National DNA Paternity
tests shows non-paternity 28% in 1999, and 30% in 2000, ?? in 2001. Source: Annual Parentage Study from
American Association of Blood Banks (AABB).
Millions of child support cases are adjudicated without
genetic proof of paternity using default judgments, administrative hearings, acknowedgment of paternity and
conclusive presumptions of paternity.
states believe their current system is adequate to maintain their eligibility for Federal matching
funds. State must get at least 90% paternity establishment
Some states have a short time limit for males to challenge paternity
(1-5 years typical). If any challenge is ever allowed.
The WORST States for Paternity Fraud
victims are CA (High default judgments and virtually no paternity challenge is allowed best
interests cover up.), and NY requires a physician approval and may require a court order. NY
victims have contacted us with proof of adultery the trial court refuses to allow the victim to
use the 0.00% DNA test to prove his innocence and Texas.
has financial incentives to do nothing for the paternity fraud victims. State gets Federal matching funds for the child support
program based on Signed Paternity Acknowledgements or administrative /court
from Gross receipts of collected support, amount of child support arrears and other criteria for
staying in the Federal money pool. This is done with ZERO incentives to establish actual
Defensive strategy calls for every single, married,
divorced or soon-to-be-divorced males is to get a DNA test immediately for all cases of child support and
divorce except formally adopted kids and births from artificial insemination (signed and notarized consent by
husband, wife and treating physician) to avoid Paternity Fraud and no-fault divorce.
The laws should require the mother to complete a
Paternity Notification Affidavit (PNA) to all potential fathers so that all males would be fully aware he is
a paternity candidate vs. the only guy. This vital information would notify the alleged father of a real
danger to him emotionally, socially, financially and psychologically. If he chooses to adopt a child that is
not his, it should always be his choice.
The DNA test will reveal the truthfulness of the
mother's PNA by confirming biological paternity.
How much money are these men paying in child
support? No exact figures unless men would be willing to share the terms of their court orders /
administrative order. See chart below for Financial cost to paternity fraud victim excluding legal fees and
