How Establishing Paternity Helps Families
Agency action, voluntary declaration, or court determination are the only ways to establish paternity.
Establishing paternity allows fathers:
- To provide child support
- To establish custody or parent time
- To have a legal say in decisions regarding the child's life
- To give their children medical and life insurance
- To give their children the benefits of Social Security payments, veteran's benefits and military allowances and inheritance
Some unmarried parents may forgo establishing the paternity of a child at birth. Failing to establish parentage can lead to problems in the future. No matter your current situation, establishing paternity gives you the ability to protect your child's rights.
