if identical twins are paternity tested would the baby show as being both of theirs?

Dh and Bil need to have a paternity test done but they're identical twins. At one point I was told that a regular paternity test would show both as the father because their DNA is so close so there's a special test they'd have to have to detect the difference in relation to the kid.

From my understanding they would have the similar/same dna. So not sure how you would test it.

Identical twins have the same dna the same dad so yes .identical twins is the result of a fertilized egg splitting into two .

Yes, they would both test as the father. They have identical DNA, so there would be no way to test to find out.

Someone got themselves in quite the bind, huh?

ETA: after thinking a bit, if they both are tested as the father, does that mean they would both have to pay CS? Hmmmmmmm

Yes, I believe so.

I don't know how that would effect child support.

No, they can't make two different men pay cs for the same kid.
