    For what purpose?

    This is not a yes or no question.

    To answer your basic question it is yes and no.

    The new york courts have no specific prohibition on the entering of valid evidence, which a hair follicle test MAY be.

    Whether your test amounts to evidence suitable to be entered, you have no provided enough info.

    If you are trying to get away with using, objecting to a follicle test may not help

    If you are trying to bust your ex with a drug test of follicles from their hairbrush, that almost certainly WILL NOT work.

    In California it IS NOT admissable.

    I have a friend who was ordered to take a hair folicle test. Although it came back positive and their urnine test came back negative (both were taken on the same day). The hair folicle positive test was thrown out as they were able to obtain a letter from a local drug testing agency that state that the hair folicle testing is not yet scientifically proven as there are MANY other contributing factors that can cause a false positive.

    Hope this information helps.

    Actually you cannot get that definite. It may be admissible depending on whether chain of custody can be testified to and whether there is someone from the testing facility or another expert on hand to explain the testing procedure or whether the parties stipulate to the test results or a variety of other factors.
    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

    OG you are right, I should not be so definate in my answers. Im still new and learning but thanks for pointing that out.

    LMAO about the britney comment!

    There were other factors that were involved, I just wanted to get it out there that it is possible in CA to get that type of test thrown out.

    The OP was asking about NEW YORK, not California. Just because something may be prohibited in another state does NOT help the OP.

    There are several posters who have successfully used hair folicle tests in various states, so the answer is:

    it depends.
