Establishing Paternity in Bohemia NY
In New York state, if a child is born to unmarried parents, it’s necessary to take steps to establish legal paternity. There are two primary ways to do this:
1. Both parents can sign and file a voluntary Acknowledgment of Parentage (AOP) form
2. File a petition with the Family Court.
Once a man has been declared the legal parent of a child, he is responsible for the child’s financial care and medical support. In addition, he has full parental rights and can request visitation with the child and/or custody.
Canceling an Acknowledgment of Paternity
If either parent changes their mind after signing a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity (AOP), they can request a court trial to reverse it. This must be done within 60 days, otherwise, the parent will have to show proof of “fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact.”
Once the case goes to court, the Support Magistrate will decide whether the acknowledgment should be reversed, based on the facts presented and the best interest of the child. It’s often possible for someone who is not a child’s biological father to still be deemed the legal father and still continue to have to pay child support. This is one reason why it’s critical to be completely sure about your paternity before signing the AOP form.
Understanding Paternity Trials in NY State
According to information provided by the Suffolk County government, if a paternity case goes to trial, both parents have the right to a lawyer, and the alleged father also has the right to ask for genetic marker tests.
It’s important to note that any man who receives notice to appear in court must appear, even if you believe the child is not yours. If you do not go to court, the judge can declare you the child’s father in what’s called a “default judgment.”
