Why is DNA testing done in only some custody cases?

Whether you are going through a divorce, petitioning to modify a custody order, pursuing child support or establishing parentage, DNA testing is an effective way of removing all argument or doubt. Once paternity is established, the information can be used for visitation, adoption, inheritance, custody, health care and other relevant matters. 

Factors that affect alimony in New York

Maintenance, also referred to as alimony or spousal support, can be granted through a divorce. It is usually ordered when one spouse earns significantly more than the other spouse, one spouse needs time to garner the skills to be relevant in the workforce again, or so one spouse can maintain the lifestyle he or she has become accustomed to. Unlike child support, alimony has far less specific guidelines for determining the amount of the payments.
