Make DNA paternity testing mandatory prior to registration on birth certificate

Petition Details

I would like the Government to make a law that states before being registered on a birth certificate there should be DNA paternity testing to make sure that the child is theirs.

Additional Information

There are too many cases where fathers have found out that a child isn’t theirs after long periods of time. Mandatory DNA paternity testing should prevent this.


If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
