State ex rel. Secretary of SRS v. Miller (Kansas 1998)

When a child is born out of wedlock and no credible evidence exists that the child has a presumed father, as set out under K.S.A.1996 Supp. 38-1114, the trial court may order genetic testing in a paternity action without first conducting a Ross hearing, which is described in In re Marriage of Ross, 245 Kan. 591, 598-602, 783 P.2d 331 (1989), to determine whether the testing would be in the best interests of the child.
