What Does Establishing Paternity Entail?

Every child deserves to know who his or her parents are, and legally establishing paternity can be the one way to tell your child about his or her father. Establishing paternity legally through the court system is an important step in building a bond between your child and his or her father, and the following information will teach you more about paternity and what it entails.

Why is establishing paternity so important?
Your child deserves to know who his or her father is, and they deserve to build a bond with his or her father. Paternity is also beneficial in providing your child with information about his or her heritage and medical history. By knowing who the father is, your child can be alerted to possible pre-existing medical conditions as well as understand where their family heritage was established.

Establishing paternity through the courts can also include monetary benefits such as child support. Both parents are financially responsible for their own child, and when you establish paternity, you can use this information to create a joint custody agreement that obligates the other parent to pay for some of the child’s needs or you can use the information to receive child support payments.

Along with monetary benefits, establishing paternity can also provide your child with insurance benefits as well as inheritance benefits.

How is paternity established?
There are different ways to establish paternity. First, if the mother is married when she gives birth, the husband is, by law, considered the father as long as the father is on the birth certificate.

If the mother is not married when the baby is born, there are two options to establish paternity. First, if the mother knows who the father is, and the father accepts his paternity obligations, the mother and father both sign documentation stating their maternal and paternal rights.

If the mother does not know who the father is, or if the assumed father contests his paternity, then a paternity test, usually through DNA or blood, will be taken to establish paternity.

I you are on the child birth certificate but still have doubts that you are the father of the child, it’s important to take a DNA test to make sure. It’s very unfortunate to start building a relationship with a child and start paying child support only to find our later than the child is in fact not biologically related to you. It’s also possible that you will be responsible for a child that’s not yours if enough time has passed and you’ve already built a strong relationship with the child.

How long can paternity be established?
The limitation on establishing paternity varies from state to state and county to county. However, even if your child is beyond the limitation and they want to know whom their father is, he or she and the assumed father can still opt to take a DNA test on their own. If the limitation has run out, the mother may or may not be able to collect back child support payments, depending on the laws in your specific state.

Some court houses have recommended paternity clinics that they recommend. You can contact your local court house to get instructions on their paternity procedures.

What happens after paternity is established?
Once paternity has been established, it’s up to you to determine what you want to do with the information. You can use it to create a child custody agreement between you and the father so that both parents can equally raise the child. If the father does not acknowledge his paternity, you also have the option of taking legal action against him. There are many different parenting plan options that can be incorporated into a legal and physical custody arrangement. Choosing one that is in the best interest of your child is imperative. Before deciding, weigh your options and consider the best interest of your child and what works best for you and your Ex. Keep in mind that family law courtroom judge’s don’t want both parent’s to be in a child life and don’t want children to have to choose between parents. Taking these factors into consideration can make establish paternity and custody go a lot smoother.

Should You Get Divorced Now or When the Kids Turn 18

Making the decision to get divorced is never easy. And adding kids to the mix makes it even worse. While some parents get divorced when the marriage becomes troublesome, other parents decide to stick the relationship out until the kids are old enough and custody is no longer an issue.

If you have kids and are contemplating divorce, you may be questioning whether you should get divorced now or wait until your kids turn 18. The choice is ultimately up to you, but the following information may help you make up your mind.

 If you get divorced now, your child may have to go to court.

If you and your soon-to-be-ex have children that are old enough to understand what is happening (the age varies from state to state), he or she may be old enough to tell the judge who they want to live with. Depending on their age and the severity of your custody battle, he or she may even be forced to choose between both parents and tell the court which parent they would rather live with. Before deciding on whether or not to get divorced, be sure to know whether or not your child will be forced to participate in the court proceedings and whether or not you will want to put them through that (as well as be able to live with the consequences if they don’t choose to live with you).

 If you wait to get divorced, it could make you and your children miserable.

Although waiting to get divorced until your children are 18 may seem like a safer and less intrusive bet, it could actually be worse. After all, there is hope that you and your spouse could divorce amicably, leaving no resentment or forced court proceedings on your child. Plus, if you wait, your loveless marriage will eventually start to show. Your child will start to see that you’re unhappy, and it may even make you irritable and force you and your spouse to fight regularly. This is likely not the upbringing you desired for your child, so if you think your well-being and the well-being of your children will suffer if you put it off, then don’t.

If you get divorced now, or if you wait to get divorced, it will take time to heal.

If you are waiting to get divorced because you don’t want your child to be mad at you or resent you, it’s important to know that he or she will have some sort of strange feeling about your divorce no matter when it happens. Both children and adult children of divorce need time to process the information as well as time to heal. If you get divorced now, know that your child will eventually forgive you for the pain he or she may feel because of it. If you get divorced later, your child may still be upset with you, and it will still take time to heal the wound. Just remember that no matter when it happens, feelings will be hurt and hearts will be broken, no matter the child’s age.
