Answer: According to the Arizona Revised Statutes § 25-807, (http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/ars/25/00807.htm&Title=25&DocType=ARS)  The court, on its own motion or on motion of any party to the proceedings, shall order the mother, her child or children and the alleged father to submit to genetic testing and shall direct that inherited characteristics to determine parentage, including blood and tissue type, be determined by appropriate testing procedures conducted by an accredited laboratory. It also provides that if the results of the examiner's report have been challenged and on the reasonable request of a party, the court shall order an additional test to be made by the same laboratory or an independent laboratory at the expense of the party requesting additional testing.
