According to the Laws of Georgia and paternity statute 19-7-46 G
In any case in which the paternity of a child has not been established, any party may make a motion for the court to order the mother, the alleged father, and the child to submit to genetic tests as specified in O.C.G.A. §19-7-45 and O.C.G.A. §19-7-43(d).
The motion shall be granted unless the court finds good cause as defined by the federal Social Security Act or if other good excuse for noncooperation is established. Effective July 1, 1997, if the court or the Department of Human Resources orders genetic testing, the Department of Human Resources shall pay the costs of the tests subject to recoupment from the alleged father if paternity is established. O.C.G.A. §19-7-43(f). O.C.G.A. §19-7-46(b) provides that there exists a rebuttable presumption of the paternity of a child born out of wedlock if scientifically credible parentage-determination genetic testing has been performed which establishes at least a 97 percent probability of paternity. Prior to July 1, 1997, this rebuttable presumption could be overcome by competent evidence to the contrary as determined by the trier of fact. Effective July 1, 1997, this rebuttable presumption can only be overcome by clear and convincing evidence to the contrary. O.C.G.A. §19-7-46(b). The parentage determination testing shall include, but is not necessarily limited to, red cell antigen, human leukocyte antigen (HLA), red cell enzyme, and serum protein electrophoresis tests, or testing by deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) probes.
An order requiring genetic tests is enforceable by contempt, provided that if the petitioner in an action to determine paternity refuses to submit to an order for a genetic test, the court may dismiss the action upon motion of the respondent. O.C.G.A. §19-7-45. Evidence of a refusal by the alleged father to submit to a genetic test in an action to determine paternity is admissible to 46(d). [More]
