What Are the Benefits of Establishing Paternity for Your Child?

Paternity hearings typically arise in cases that involve a child born to unmarried parents. Legally establishing paternity provides the father with certain rights. Once paternity has been established, the father has right to custody, placement and the obligation to provide support.

How Can Paternity Be Established?

When a married couple has a child, paternity is typically established at birth. However, for a child born outside of marriage, there are numerous ways to establish the father’s paternity, both in court and outside of the courtroom. If there is any question regarding the father’s paternity, it is best to seek legal counsel. Legal paternity can be established through:

  • Voluntary Paternity Acknowledge Form
  • DNA Testing Through the Courts
