The Impact of Paternity Rights
Establishing or challenging paternity can have a substantial effect on a vast array of family law issues, including child support and child custody. Issues pertaining to paternity are especially crucial for parents who are not married. Once the court establishes paternity when a child is born out of wedlock, the father will have the same parental responsibilities and rights to a child as he would if the child’s parents were married.
Below are some reasons why establishing paternity is important:
- If you wish to seek court-ordered visitation or custody rights, and you are an unmarried father, you must first establish paternity.
- If you are a mother and wish to seek child support, establishing paternity will allow you to hold the father responsible.
- Establishing paternity protects the father from third parties seeking custody if the mother dies or becomes incapacitated.
- Establishing paternity can provide substantial benefits for the child, such as health insurance coverage, inheritance rights, and the right to Social Security benefits.
Although the process of establishing paternity can be complicated, there are typically two main ways to approach it.
Here are the two main ways to establish paternity:
- Through a voluntary declaration of paternity, wherein both parents sign and acknowledge they are the legal parents of a child.
- Through a judicial action. For example, if a father believes he is the father of a child, he can request an order of paternity from the court. The mother, an adoption agency, a child over the age of 12, and a local child support agency may also request an order of paternity.
