In South Dakota, what is genetic testing?

In South Dakota, when a father refuses to acknowledge paternity, genetic testing can be ordered. Genetic testing compares the DNA of the child, mother, and alleged father to determine the probability that the alleged father is the biological father. These tests are extremely accurate and can absolutely determine if the alleged father is NOT the biological father. They can determine with a 99 percent or higher decree of certainty that the alleged father is the child’s biological father.
