Would I be responsible for paying a DNA case if the man in question isn’t the bio-father of my child?

Q: I want to find out if my husband or another man is the bio-father to my son, if I went to child support and requested for either one to financially assist me in taking care of my son, and he requested a DNA test to prove he is indeed the bio-father to my son, and the results were to come back that he is not in fact the bio-father. Would I be held responsible for paying for the DNA test? Thank in advance

A: David’s Answer: The Court does have discretion to assess you with the costs of the test if it comes back negative. That said, as I recall the test costs about $150-200. Call a Bronx Family Law attorney for more info.
