3119.965 Granting relief from paternity determination does not preclude action to establish parent-child relationship.

If a court grants a motion that relieves a person or male minor from a judgment, order, or determination under section 3119.962 of the Revised Code, the granting of the motion does not preclude any person from filing, subsequent to the granting of the motion, an action under Chapter 3111. of the Revised Code to establish a parent-child relationship between the person or male minor who was granted relief and the child who is the subject of the judgment, order, or determination from which relief was granted. A person shall not file more than one action of that type under Chapter 3111. of the Revised Code in any two-year period regarding the person or male minor who was granted relief and the child. A court, pursuant to a motion filed under this division and in accordance with Chapter 3111. of the Revised Code, may enter a judgment in the action that determines the existence of a parent-child relationship between the person or male minor granted relief and the child only if genetic tests taken subsequent to the granting of the motion for relief indicate that there is a statistical probability that the party or the male minor is the natural father of the child.
