Serological Test Law and Legal Definition

Serological test refers to a state ordered blood test in order to determine the presence of any venereal disease in a couple who applies for a marriage license.

Some state statutes requiring a standard serological test before a license for marriage will be issued because it furthers the compelling interests in the health and welfare of the citizens. [ In re Kilpatrick, 180 W. Va. 162 (W. Va. 1988)]
