My Caseworker Filed A Uifsa Petition For Paternity. The Father Denied It, And The Other Court Just Dismissed The Case. What Happened?

A responding state should not dismiss a case without requesting the additional information needed to proceed, and the initiating state is required to provide that information in 30 days. Either party in a contested paternity action will be able to request genetic testing. Ask your caseworker to reopen the case. Paternity may be established until your child`s 18th birthday.
