State ex rel. SRS v. Kimbrel (Kansas 2010)

In an action brought by the Secretary of Social and Rehabilitation Services on behalf of a mother and her biological child for an order of child support, a district court may determine, based on genetic testing ordered pursuant to K.S.A. 38-1118(a), and In re Marriage of Ross, 245 Kan. 591, 783 P.2d 331 (1989), that clear and convincing evidence proves a man who has executed a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity under K.S.A. 38-1138 is not the biological father of the child, and accordingly, the court may find the presumption of paternity is rebutted, end the father child relationship, and deny a petition for child support.
