Guaynabo, PR - DNA Testing

Paternity Laws in Guaynabo, PR

In the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, there are basic laws to help individuals navigate questions establishing paternity with the Vital Statistics Register. Under Puerto Rico law, a man is presumed to be a child's father when he is either married to the mother or if the child was born within 300 days of the termination of a marriage.

In instances where the legally presumed father is actually not the biological father, a voluntary acknowledgment can be used to properly identify the correct father. If two Guaynabo, PR parents are not married at the time of their child's birth, a child's paternity can also be legitimized if the mother and father get married once the child is born.

Challenging Paternity in Guaynabo, PR

In certain instances, a Guaynabo, PR resident may need to challenge a paternity establishment due an incorrect paternity assumption. Under Puerto Rico law, either the presumed father, biological father, mother, or child has the ability to challenge the presumption of paternity. Puerto Rico law additionally states that action to challenge paternity must be legally filed within six months of the date a parent learns of the inaccuracy regarding the paternity.

Bear in mind, a legal father or mother will not have the ability to challenge paternity if they were previously made aware of the inaccuracy through DNA paternity testing and still voluntarily registered the child with the Vital Statistics Register. If DNA testing was not completed, these individuals have a year from the child's registration to challenge the legal paternity declaration.

Navigating Custody Agreements in Guaynabo, PR

After two Guaynabo parents register their child with the Vital Statistics Register, the two may encounter difficulty establishing a custody agreement that works in the best interest of the child. In the territory of Puerto Rico, a judge can decide who the child's primary caregiver(s) will be using an assessment process involving both parents.

Typically, Puerto Rico courts will require the completion of a home study from the Department of Families which will assess various factors, including living conditions and preferences of the child. These details will be reported back to the judge, who will construct a custody agreement that works in the best interest of the child and which may vary from sole custody to split 50/50 custody.
