The Importance of Establishing Paternity

Without declared paternity, a father may lose his rights to visit or care for his child. On top of that, mothers may find themselves unable to request child support if a father’s name is not on the birth certificate.

According to the California Department of Child Support Services, it is important for children to know who both their parents are.

Paternity allows:

  • Doctors to have access to the family medical histories of both parents
  • The child to acquire better insurance coverage
  • Children the right to inherit and benefit from veteran’s benefits or Social Security of either parent in the future

    Ways to Establish Paternity

    If parents are married, their names will both appear on the birth certificate. Unmarried parents can declare paternity by signing a Paternity Opportunity Program (POP) Declaration of Paternity form at the hospital when the baby is born. Both parents must sign this document for it be valid. If you don’t receive this form at the hospital, it is available at your local registrar, court, or child support agency.

    Another way to establish paternity is with a court order. It is important to get a Temecula paternity attorney involved if you are contesting paternity. Going this route may require genetic testing – keep in mind that some doctors will not perform genetic testing until the baby is at least six months old.

    Let one of the caring and compassionate lawyers at Camarata & Marren partner with you as you work through paternity matters. We understand the federal and state laws that govern paternity and can help you whether you are hoping to establish or contest paternity.
