Why is establishing paternity important?

When an unmarried couple has a baby, they must take an extra legal step to establish paternity to legally declare the biological father as the legal father. Paternity is required before pursuing other family law-related actions, such as child custody and child support.

Establishing paternity offers many advantages for your child, including

  • Your child can have access to both parents’ medical histories
  • Your child can legally qualify for benefits through his or her father
  • Your child can receive child support from his or her father
  • Your child can have a chance to develop a healthy bond with his or her father

Paternity can be established through a paternity affidavit or by going to court. If there is no disagreement about the paternity of a child, then both parents can sign the paternity affidavit. Signing this document means both parents agree to the rights and responsibilities of caring for the child. If there is a dispute regarding a child’s paternity, then you may request a DNA test through the court.

Happy Clients

  • From the beginning he spelled out my options, was very caring but no-nonsense, and explained what may or may not happen.

    “Andrew Dutkanych provided excellent legal counsel for me. I sought his counsel for an employment issue regarding harrassment and age discrimination and was both emotional and angry that my managerial position was being eroded and my duties systematically taken away. He carefully listened to my concerns and confirmed that I indeed had an EEOC case based on age discrimination. From the beginning he spelled out my options, was very caring but no-nonsense, and explained what may or may not happen. He filed all documents immediately, always returned phone calls or e-mails and successfully negotiated a settlement. Perhaps most importantly, he helped keep me calm when my employer was clearly increasing her harrassment in the hopes that I would quit or walk out. I would definitely recommend him and thank him again for his expertise!”
