I need to have a paternity test done and i am no longer in contact with the father. What steps can i take to have this done?

Posted by peanut

I am about five months pregnant, and when I found out i was pregnant, my boyfriend and i were very happy about it.  Since then, things have gone downhill for us and he has demanded a pre-birth paternity test.  I have not spoken to him in about three months and he does not keep contact with me.  I know he wants this done, but i do not have is dna profile to make a match.  Is there any way a paternity test can be done without his dna?

As far as I know you need to have any example of your partner's DNA. This could be his hair or skin or salvia or sweat. If you think that you have some object which may contain any example like some part of clothes or any personal thing that he used for some time then some lab should be able to help you.

Yet if you're sure he still wants the test to be done you may try to contact some lab, find what kind of example suits them and then contact your boyfriend telling him of your arrengement and thus a need for an example of his DNA explaining that you cannot possibly make a test without it.

Good luck and take care!
