Thousands have been incarcerated for owing back child support without DNA confirmation of paternity. Too high a proportion of non-custodial entities are denied DNA fingerprinting for confirmation of fatherhood and are forced to pay support as well as threatened and sent to prison for non-payment. Many state social service agencies, for example Missouri Department of Social Services, shirk their responsibility to order DNA testing upon receipt of a paternity challenge. Millions have been denied the right to know their true genealogy; especially the offspring; while lives are shattered by uncertainty. Please help us end the charade while edifying children and young adults' futures.
