ABO Blood Testing for Determining Paternity
Because there is hardly ever a debate on whether a child belongs to the mother, fathers are almost always the parental figure in question when there is a dispute regarding the parentage of a child. The possible father can take a paternity test and officially prove whether or not he is the biological father. These paternity tests are very useful in child custody or child support cases because it determines whether the father is financially responsible for the child.
There are two types of paternity tests. The simpler version is called the ABO blood test. If you are having trouble getting the supposed father of your child to make child support payments, you may need a qualified attorney to help make him submit to a paternity test.

ABO Blood Test Basics
The ABO blood test focuses on testing the child and father’s blood to determine paternity. There are four main blood types – A, B, AB, and O – and the child’s blood type comes from his or her parents. Depending on what blood type the child is, he or she can only have a certain number of combinations from the parents.
ABO blood testing can provide proof that the man is not the biological father. For example, if the child has an AB blood type and the mother has O-type, the father could not have O-type himself. However, as a child with AB blood can come from a father with either A, B, or AB blood, you may require additional tests to more accurately determine paternity.
