JUDGE CAN ORDER CHILD TO UNDERGO PATERNITY TEST AND FOR THE CHILD PROTECTION AGENCY TO PAY FOR IT
This was affirmed by Justice S.B. Sherr in the decision of Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Toronto v. N.S., 2015 ONCJ 388. You can read it here.
The alleged father in a child protection proceeding asked for a DNA test to determine the child’s paternity. The father argued that he had insufficient funds to pay for it, however. No party opposed the Father’s request but no one wanted to pay for the testing. Justice Sherr granted the Father’s request.
