Should the father of record be given a DNA test at the time of a baby's birth by law?
According to several studies women give birth to a baby that has not been fathered by the man she names as the father at surprising rates. In some countries the numbers of cases of the father of a baby being a man other than the husband or named father is as high as 30%. Obviously this can be problematic for either party if the relationship ends and child support becomes an issue.
Imagine how much time and money the family courts could save if every father was given a paternity test at the time of a baby's birth. And more importantly imagine how many idiots wouldn't need to appear on the Maury Povich Show to get a paternity test.
So wouldn't it simplify things if every new dad was made to take a DNA test to determine paternity?
