What does it mean when the judge adjourns a case to a later date to see if a paternity test should be done, when I'm requesting?

Q: I requested a paternity test be done and the judge adjourned the case to see if a paternity test is necessary.

A: One does not automatically get a DNA test just for the asking. If you're the father, then the question is whether you executed the acknowledgment of paternity, or whether the legal doctrine of "equitable estoppel" applies. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Custody attorney for a full assessment.
