Can a father get a free blood test to see if his child is his? A man has claimed that my friends son is his and name details about the same time of child being conceived. the mother denies all accusations but child could pass for the other guys child. the child is 3 mos old now. is it too late for him to get a paternity test done for free? can he sue mother if child is not his?

It will initially be free, but if you are found to be the father then you will need to pay for the DNA test.

Someone has to pay the laboratory for their professional services. If a paternity case is commenced, the court will order that DNA testing occur. Sometimes a person who is alleged to be the father will pay up front, but if he is found not to be the father, the mother will have to repay him.
