A DNA test can be demanding enough. Add the fact that you don’t want mom, child, or maybe even the possible father to know about the testing and it becomes even more of a worry! Want to know is it illegal to do a DNA test without consent? DNA tests are often requested by the court when there is a dispute as to the legal parentage of a child, as paternity law is concerned with the official recognition of a child’s biological father. A paternity action may be filed to establish whether a person is or is not the natural parent of a child; and if so, to agree on how the child will be parented; the parents’ legal and physical custody rights and child support obligations.
