Does the mother need to be DNA tested to achieve an accurate result for paternity testing?

No. In most cases, reliable, accurate paternity test results can be achieved without the mother involved. In the DNA testing lab, we compare the child’s DNA to the father’s DNA. We have had a lot of experience performing motherless paternity testing. When possible, however, we prefer to include the mother in the paternity test because it provides establishes an even stronger foundation for quality controlled DNA testing.
