The importance of paternity can be understated from time to time. This is because there are some parties who may not understand the benefits and what can happen if either the mother or potential father take action to establish paternity. At Westover Law Group, our Murrieta paternity attorneys explain how you can establish paternity, the benefits, and more.
Paternity is established in a number of ways. One way is if the parents are married to each other at the time the baby is born. If the parents are unmarried and Acknowledgement of Paternity is signed, it could establish the man as the father. Other forms of establishing paternity include a court order or administrative order based on the testing of genetics.
The benefits of establishing paternity depend on the situation. However, establishing paternity can benefit either the mother or the father in many ways. For the father, establishing paternity gives them the opportunity to seek visitation or custody, form a bond with his child, and the ability to make important decisions regarding the child’s upbringing.
