There is no single guideline model used in each state, but the states generally set forth their basic principles in their guidelines.

In cases filed by a child support agency, the agency usually pays the fee, but may seek to recover the costs later. If the alleged father refuses to take a DNA test, paternity can still be established by applying the presumptions discussed above or by default.

Once a case is opened, a caseworker will send a letter to the custodial parent for an appointment as soon as the named father or mother is located.

If the father has not signed this form, a petition to establish parentage is set forth and filed with the court.
