Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Centennial, CO

If the mother and father are married when the child is born, paternity does not need to be established, and the husband is presumed the legal father. But in Centennial, CO, if the parents are not married, they must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. This can be done voluntarily if both parents agree to sign an Acknowledgment of Parentage form. Paternity can also be established with an Administrative Paternity Order or by going to court. The judge may order a DNA test if the case goes to court. If paternity is in question, DNA testing can determine paternity.

Experts Say...

Robinson & Henry, P.C., attorneys serving Centennial, CO, explain the importance of establishing paternity. "As more unmarried couples have children, it's not always clear who should have fatherly rights and responsibilities to a child," the lawyers explain. "When the matter isn't clarified, couples deprive the child of crucial support and set the stage for legal conflicts down the road."

They explain that establishing paternity benefits the child, mother, and father. "Once paternity is established, the legally recognized father can enact his parental rights to ensure he receives parenting time should his relationship with the mother fall on bad terms," the attorneys say. "If he chooses, he can even file for custody to have more control over the child's education, health care, and moral development." They explain that the mother benefits from paternity by allowing her to receive child support payments and assistance with medical care and education. The child benefits from having a legal father by obtaining rights to any benefits the father can offer, such as medical or veterans' benefits. "Those are just the tangible benefits," they continue. "The child will also benefit from having a fatherly mentor and role model, along with two parents to bond with. This could prove far more valuable to the child in the long run."
