When the child is born in the hospital, what are required steps for a paternity test in New York State?

  • By: David Bliven
  • Published: March 30, 2022

Q: Unmarried couple, together for 2 years but not living together. Female is 8 months pregnant. Male is fairly certain that the unborn child is his but before having his name placed on the birth certificate wants to fully confirm that the child is his.

A: You can have an informal one, or either party may petition the court for a paternity test. Technically, only the one done via the court is the “official” test. Call a Westchester Family Law attorney for more info.
