Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. There is provision under the Statue of children Act, 1987, for a blood sample to be taken from any father of a child to determine parentage, by means of a DNA test. However, there is no provision for the taking of blood samples from grandparents or other people. Accordingly, if you wish to ascertain the parentage of your child, you can get a court order that the father provide a Blood sample for DNA purposes, but there is no statutory provision for the grandparents being forced to give a DNA sample, or to give a blood sample. So irrespective of the wedding, it is the father of the child who can be forced to give a blood or DNA sample and not anyone else.
