  • Look in your phone book under Labs. Most I called in my area were $450 - $600.

  • You could always apply for child support with the state. They do it and if he is the father there is a fee and if not he pays nothing. It can be added to the child support "bill" and he can pay a little at a time.

  • if you file for child support the state will do the test

  • In Wisconsin, the only way a paternity test is done for child support is if the father denies being the father and then the father has to pay for all testing and it does not get added to the child support. The tests run anywhere from $300-600. There is no way I could tell you what test would be accurate, I would only do it with a lab that knows what they are doing.
