Cordell & Cordell, P.C. Litigation Manager, Jill Best, speaks out about a man forced to pay child-support after a DNA test excludes him as the biological father. In a two-part segment titled Dad By Default, Ms. Best weighs in on the state of family law in Kansas and Missouri that can require a man to take responsibility for a child even if DNA evidence supports the opposition.
Unfortunately, this situation is not uncommon in Kansas. The state will decide who is the father by considering what is in "the best interest" of the child.
