Establishing Paternity in Kew Gardens, NY

When a married couple has a child in the state of New York, legal paternity is automatically granted to the husband as the law presumes him to be the biological father. For an unmarried Kew Gardens, NY father to gain legal rights over his child, he and the child's mother will need to legally establish paternity. The simplest way to go about the paternity establishment process in Kew Gardens is by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) form.

This voluntary form will first be presented by hospital staff following a child's birth and should be signed by both parents to quickly and effectively establish paternity. If both parents are unable to complete this process at the hospital, an acknowledgment can be completed at a later date through the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, NYC Human Resources Administration, or Office of Child Support Enforcement.

Disestablishing Paternity in Kew Gardens, NY

Not always should two Kew Gardens parents rush to establish paternity. In certain instances, a couple may be quick to assume paternity to later discover that the presumed father is not a biological match. In the state of New York, a couple has up to 60 days following the filing of an Acknowledgement of Paternity to cancel it.

A court hearing will be required to cancel the AOP, where a judge may request DNA paternity testing to prove the AOP is inaccurate. After the 60-day mark, a parent will need to provide proof of paternity fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact in court to have an AOP canceled.

Paternity Programs in Kew Gardens, NY

To protect the rights of a Kew Gardens man who believes he has fathered a child, the state of New York established the Putative Father Registry. The registry maintains information of a presumed father who has filed a notice to claim paternity, acknowledged paternity of the child, or been determined by a court to be the father of the child.

In the event that the child is involved in any legal proceedings, the presumed father will be notified if properly registered with the Putative Father Registry. These updates in legal proceedings can include foster care hearings, guardianship and custody hearings, or adoption hearings.
