Court Confirms Paternity of One Twin

On Behalf of | Aug 24, 2015 | Firm News |

In an interesting decision, the trial court confirmed a finding of paternity against a father as to one of two twins after reviewing the relevant DNA evidence, and accepting expert testimony, which indicated that the twins had different biological fathers.  

As set forth by the Court:  “This is a case of first impression in New Jersey and only a handful of reported cases exist nationwide. This court had to determine whether to accept DNA paternity test results showing that A.S. is the father of only one and not the other twin, a phenomenon that is widely accepted in the relevant scientific communities, even though such results are considered scientifically and statistically rare.” 

Although not a case which will have far-reaching impact for most individuals, it presents a unique set of circumstances and is quite interesting from a human interest perspective.
