Last week, the Court of Special Appeals released an opinion regarding paternity when the husband may not be father of a child born during the marriage. A lower court decision denying a DNA test to the ex-husband was reversed, allowing the man to file a motion requesting the test. Maryland court rules about discovery allow the court to order a physical examination of a person, including blood tests, for "good cause shown." Arguably, this is a lower standard than "best interests of a child" and would seem to allow more men to at least find out if they are the father. What about child support and custody? The opinion does not directly address the issue, therefore it is still possible that a man who is not the child's father can still be on the hook for child support.
