Court determination of paternity

A. If no appeal has been taken from the final order and the time allowed to perfect an appeal has expired, a new certificate of birth may be prepared by the State Registrar for a child born in this Commonwealth upon receipt of a certified copy of a court determination of paternity.

B. A new certificate of birth may be prepared by the State Registrar for a child born in the Commonwealth upon receipt of the certified copies of a document signed by a man indicating his consent to submit to scientifically reliable genetic tests, including blood tests, to determine paternity and the genetic test results affirming at least a 98% probability of paternity from an ABBA-approved laboratory, together with a request from the biological mother, biological father or person having legal custody of the child that such new certificate be prepared. Changing the child's surname to the biological father's surname requires the signatures of both parents or (i) the father in the case of death or incapacity of the mother or (ii) the mother in the case of the death or incapacity of the father.

22VAC 40-880-170. Establishing paternity.

In order for the department to establish a child support obligation and to enforce and collect child support payments from a putative father, the father must be determined to be legally responsible for the support of the child. In situations in which a putative father has not been legally determined to be the father of the child, paternity must be established before a child support obligation can be administratively ordered or court ordered. The department pursues paternity establishment in accordance with §§ 20-49.1 through 20-49.9 and 63.1-250.1:2 of the Code of Virginia.

1. The department shall obtain a sworn statement for each child from the mother acknowledging the paternity of the child or children for whom child support is sought.
2. Based on this sworn statement, the department shall attempt to locate the putative father, if necessary, according to the locate time requirements described in Part III (22VAC40-880-140 et seq.) of this chapter.
3. Once the putative father is located, the department shall contact him to determine if he is willing to sign a sworn statement voluntarily acknowledging paternity or to voluntarily submit to genetic testing to determine paternity.
a. The department shall advise the putative father verbally and in writing of his rights and responsibilities regarding child support prior to obtaining a sworn statement of paternity.
b. A putative father who signs a sworn statement of paternity along with an acknowledgement from the mother or who, through genetic testing, is affirmed by at least a 98% probability to be the father of the child is responsible for the financial support of the child or children.

4. When the putative father does not sign a sworn statement of paternity or does not voluntarily submit to genetic testing, the department shall order the putative father to submit to genetic testing. If the putative father refuses to comply with the genetic testing order, the department shall petition the court for a paternity determination when there is sufficient evidence to do so.

5. Within 90 calendar days of locating the putative father, the department shall:
a. Obtain a sworn acknowledgement of paternity or arrange for voluntary or mandatory genetic testing or the purpose of establishing paternity, or
b. File a petition with the court for paternity establishment.

6. In any case where more than one putative father has been identified, the department shall pursue paternity for all putative fathers. [More]

DNA Analysis For Birth Certificate & AABB Immigration Testing

In general, when a person wishes to have their last name added to a child's birth certificate, the state will require that a legal DNA test be performed to prove the biological relationship. Any realtional test may be used to prove kinship such a paternity, maternity, siblingship, grandparent, and avuncular. This is also true when you desire to collect Social Security benefits or get a visa from the USCIS & Deapartment Of Homeland Security in an immigration situation where someone is being brought into the United States from another country.
