Parentage must be determined before a Family Court Judge has the legal authority to assign duties, rights and obligations to a child’s father. In accordance with State law, when a child is born during marriage, or within a specific time period after the termination of marriage via death, divorce or marital nullification, the husband is automatically deemed to be the legal father.
Regarding couples who are not married at the time of a child’s birth, if a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity (which may be rescinded within 60 days) was signed by both parties, the court must still formally establish parentage. After this legal requirement is met, judicial rulings may be issued regarding legal and physical custody, child support, and visitation rights.
When paternity is in dispute, the court will order that the parties submit to a DNA test and will rule accordingly, either confirming parentage and assigning support, custody and visitation, or dismissing the action in its entirety.
Ignoring a Request to Establish Parentage summons that has been served upon you and failing to file an answer within the mandatory timeframe will lead to the issuance of a default finding of paternity, which can be exceedingly difficult to have set aside or voided.
If you have been served with notice of a Paternity action, it is vital that you hire a lawyer who possesses vast experience handling Parentage cases. Irvine Paternity Attorney Amy Neshanian has been helping individuals file for and defend against parentage matters since 2002.
