Should the court grant paternity tests solely based on one party's suspicions?1
The court shall be cautious about initiating paternity testing required by one party in the family case. With respect to the request of confirmation of paternity or denial of paternity, the alleging party shall bear the corresponding burden of proof. After examining the relevant facts, supported by evidence provided by the parties, if the People's Court believes that it is necessary to conduct paternity testing, the court may grant paternity testing according to the application of the parties. If a party applies for paternity testing only based on suspicion or speculation without any supporting evidence, such a motion shall not be granted unless the other party agrees with such a test.
