Free Paternity Tests Aim to Help Curb Child Support Debt

By Sheryl Rentz on December 2, 2009

Mississippi has recently taken efforts to receive federal funding to help children. Based on a 2.wjtv.com report, Mississippi’s Department of Human Services is hoping that offering free paternity tests will motivate more potential fathers to take responsibility for helping support their children, if that responsibility is in fact theirs to uphold.

According to the report, the state’s main goal is to obtain more child support payments, which will ultimately assist Mississippi federal funding for the new fiscal year. Therefore, the Department of Human Services is providing DNA tests, which can amount to costs between $300 and $500. This initiative may even be something that Mississippi prolongs or that other states adopt to further help parents who can’t afford a paternity test.

Paternity tests are provided to outweigh any doubt when it comes to questioning who the father of a child is, and are especially sought after when child support is in high demand. These tests are usually administered when issues pertaining to child custody and child support arise, and are known to be over 99% accurate in comparing the DNA of a child to a potential father.

The skilled Philadelphia family law attorneys at the Law Offices of Sheryl R. Rentz are highly familiar with the complexities surrounding child support and many other family law issues. In our many years of experience assisting parents in receiving the accurate child support they need, we have also helped parents in modifying their child support when such action applies to their particular situation.
