FAQ - Paternity

If genetic testing is necessary, who pays for it?

The State of Arizona will pay for genetic testing in advance. The alleged father signs an agreement to repay the state should he be identified as the father through the testing. If the alleged father is found to be the biological father of the child, he can repay the fees in a lump sum or can repay the state in monthly installments until the costs of the tests are paid in full.
