Why Does Paternity Matter?

Establishing the biological relationship between a child and their father is crucial and can play into a majority of family law disputes. Issues like child custody, visitation, child support, and even parental rights will all be affected by paternity matters. Typically, paternity is originally established at a child's birth, where the husband is assumed to be the father and the wife is assumed to be the mother. However, if a couple wasn't married or considered domestic partners at that time, they may have to take additional steps to prove paternity, such as obtaining a court order or signing a Declaration of Paternity.

Why is it important to take these steps? There are many benefits:

  • Child will receive financial support from both parents
  • Legal record and identification of both parents
  • Eliminates questions or doubts for child
  • Provides access to family medical records for health reasons
  • Gives the child health insurance from either parent
  • Provide the non-custodial parent custody and visitation rights

The court will still need to make orders for certain provisions, which is just another reason why having a San Bernardino divorce lawyer by your side during this time is so imperative. If you are concerned about establishing paternity or need to obtain child support from a father, be sure to reach out to us for legal guidance.
