  • He thinks his wife/girlfriend was unfaithful to them.  “I don’t remember having sex that month…that baby can’t be mine.”
  • They want to prove a child is their child, when a women is saying it’s not your baby, but they believe it is or could be.  “I know I had sex with her and now she is saying it can’t be mine…she must think I don’t make as much money as that other guy.  Little does she know I’m loaded.”
  • He is fighting for custody.  “This lady is crazy if she thinks, she is getting custody of my kid!”
  • A one night stand is trying to pin their child on him.  “Man I was drunk that night.  We didn’t have sex did we?”

Now the top 4 reasons why a women may want to get a DNA Paternity Test.


  • She needs child support.  “He better get his act together and figure out how he is going to help support this baby.”
  • She is a single lady playing the field.  “Well if I conceived the baby around the 5th and I slept with Guy A on the 4th and Guy B on the 6th, it should be Guy A’s right?”
  • She may have cheated on her boyfriend or husband.  “Well there was that one night, where I was out and had a little too much to drink, but I don’t think it went that far right?”
  • She was going through divorce and has to prove the children were not her husband’s in the first place.  “Well I thought we would be together forever and now that things aren’t working out, I don’t want to share custody.  he isn’t their dad anyway.”

On another note, there can be some more serious reasons that DNA paternity tests are necessary.
