Greeley, Colorado – DNA Testing
Establishing paternity in Greeley, CO
The husband is automatically considered the legal father if the mother is married when the child is born. However, unmarried parents must establish paternity; otherwise, the child does not have a legal father. In Greeley, Colorado, parents have two options for how to do so. Parents can sign an affidavit of paternity or go to court.
Usually, when parents do not have any reason to doubt paternity and are on good terms, they sign the affidavit of paternity right after the child is born at the hospital, the Office of Vital Records, or birthing paternity. There must be a witness, and parents must sign and file the documents. After that, the father can be added to the birth certificate. However, it is important to note that signing this document is legally binding, and parents should not proceed if there are any doubts about who the biological father is.
Another option is establishing paternity via court, which many parents opt for when they are unsure or disagree about who the biological father is. The judge will make the ruling and decide whether the alleged father is the legal father. Usually, going through the court will involve genetic testing of the child and the alleged father to prove their relationship.
Greeley, Colorado: Challenging paternity
If paternity has already been established, it is tough to revoke it without court action, especially once sixty days have passed since signing the Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP). Under many circumstances, legal paternity can be nearly impossible to challenge without strong evidence. For cases of paternity established by neglect, fraud, or mistake, the state of Colorado might make an exception to challenge paternity up to 182 (or six months) days later. However, challenging paternity in Colorado can become increasingly difficult the more time that has elapsed, and it is crucial to address any concerns immediately.
