.
6.
The test results, together with the opinions and conclusions of the test laboratory, shall be filed with
the Court. Any objection to the test results must be made in writing and must be filed with the
Court at least 10 days before the hearing. If no objection is filed, the test results shall be admitted
into evidence with no further predicate. Nothing in this paragraph prohibits a party from calling an
outside expert witness to refute or support the testing procedure or results or the mathematical
theory on which they are based.
7.
Test results are admissible in evidence and should be weighed along with other evidence of the
paternity of the alleged father unless the statistical probability of paternity equals or exceeds 95
percent. A statistical probability of 95 percent or more creates a rebuttable presumption that the
alleged father is the biological father of the child(ren). If the party fails to rebut the presumption of
paternity, the Court may enter a summary judgment of paternity. If the test results show the alleged
father cannot be the biological father, the case shall be dismissed with prejudice.
8.
The Court reserves jurisdiction over the parties and the subject matter of this action to enforce the
terms and provisions of this and all previous orders as well as to enter such other orders as may be
just.
