Watch any soap opera and you'll find a storyline featuring a devious mother or child trying to get their hands on a whopping great inheritance or trust fund. In real life however, there are scenarios where questions of paternity do become bitter feuds in the courts. A paternity test is usually required to try and rule on the court case in question.
One recent trust fund battle was that of two sons and their mother. The mother told a court that her youngest son was not fathered by her husband and therefore was not eligible to have a share of the £300,000 family trust fund. She claimed a friend of hers who agreed to father a child with her was his father and a paternity test would prove that to be the case.
Paternity Test - Rights to the Trust Fund
But the alleged father denied he was the father of her youngest son, David. David took his case to the High Court to try and secure his rights to the trust fund. The alleged father had previously refused to take a paternity test to help the court settle the question of paternity but later agreed to take a paternity test to finally settle the court case once and for all.
Paternity Test - Family Fall Out
Although the alleged father is now in his eighties, the mother in her late seventies and the son in question in his thirties, it seems age and time have played no part in softening the paternity battle and that only a paternity test will end the feud.
Paternity test - Settled in Court
Such court cases are not unusual when money comes into play. The emotional fall out of the case however shows that taking a paternity test is more than just about money. It appeared that there were clearly problems and arguments between the mother and her youngest son who she was trying to stop claiming his share of the family trust fund. He said his mother acted in 'unpredictable' and 'manipulative' ways and was 'dysfunctional'. When it comes to a paternity test and big sums of money, it seems family feuds only become deeper.

"I would like to thank you for my recently received DNA map and blurb. I took this test out of curiosity and whatever it had said would have been of interest... I was surprised and fascinated by my report and I'm really glad that I had it done... I am going to get a test for my husband's birthday in April."- C.T.
