The Act provides that a motion may be made to set aside a judgment requiring a male to pay child support following newly discovered DNA evidence conclusively demonstrating that the male is not the biological father. In order for the court to grant such relief, the Act requires an affidavit by the male stating that (1) the evidence has come to his attention since the judgment's entry and, (2) the male has not adopted the child. However, if the moving party fails to meet the requirements. as set forth in the Act, a judge may grant the motion or enter an order regarding paternity, duty to support, custody, and visitation privileges as otherwise provided by law.
