How to Establish Paternity

In California, if a woman is married when she has a child, her husband is presumed to be the father – though this can be disputed in court within two years of the child’s birth. If the mother is not married at the time of conception, a man can sign and file a voluntary declaration of paternity.

If there is any dispute over who is the biological father of the child – who has a legal obligation to financially support his child – the court will likely order the alleged father to complete a DNA test administered by a court-appointed expert.

The Benefits of Establishing Paternity

Establishing paternity has several advantages for mothers, fathers, and children alike. Though the process can be tough in certain situations, it is worthwhile to ensure that everyone can exercise their rights and receive the support they need.

Establishing paternity can be beneficial to parents and children because:

  • It ensures that mothers receive financial and/or parenting support from the biological father
  • It helps fathers reinforce their parental rights and gain access to their children
  • It helps children better understand their family’s medical history

At Akbarian Law Group, our Encino paternity lawyer understands the sensitivity of paternity cases and approaches them tactfully. She takes great care to protect her clients’ rights while acting in the child’s best interests.
