  • Depends. If it's for legal purposes you have to get it from a certified testing center or product. If you want a prenatal paternity test I think at minimum its $450. If you want one for after birth it's at minimum $30.

  • I had one done and it cost the father 700.00
    the baby and I were on PA and we provided the father's name, but he was being an ass and denied paternity. So they made him take one. If the baby had not been his, he wouldn't have been charged. But since he knew he was the baby's father and still made them take the test, they made him reimburse the state.
