Lawrenceville Paternity Attorney

Establishing Paternity

When an unmarried mother is seeking support from the child's biological father through the legal system, she will need to establish paternity. Evidence of a signed Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement form, which is completed at the time of the child's birth, is one way for a mother to prove paternity. If the form was not signed when the child was born, paternity can also be established through DNA testing. Once paternity has been verified by the court, the biological father is considered legally responsible for the child, and can be ordered to pay support. Establishing paternity will also give the father custody and visitation rights. The establishment of paternity can not only be requested by a mother, but also:

  • The child
  • Any relative responsible for the care of the child
  • The Department of Human Services in matters pertaining to public assistance
  • The alleged father of the child

The biological father of the child also has the option of pursuing custody and visitation rights through the legitimation process. If you are a mother or father that is seeking to establish paternity, speak with a Lawrenceville divorce lawyer to find out about your rights and legal options. Paternity laws can be extremely complex. With the help of a skilled divorce attorney, you can find out exactly what steps need to be taken regarding your particular circumstances.
