Do we need a doctor’s request or a court order to get a DNA test?

No. However, we recommend that the parties tested consult with an advisor such as an attorney or doctor, as test results can have significant legal, financial, and emotional consequences. For legally-admissible paternity tests, in the absence of a court order, consent for testing of minor children must be provided by an adult who has the legal authority to do so.
