DNA Testing In Long Island City, New York
“If your child was born out of wedlock, you may have to take legal action to establish yourself as the father. When a child is born to married parents, the law presumes that both spouses are the natural parents of the child,” according to The Law Offices of Eiges & Orgel, PLLC, serving Queens and Long Island City, NY.
They explain the benefits of establishing paternity. “Establishing paternity is beneficial for mothers and fathers. If you are a mother, establishing paternity allows you to seek child support. If you are the father, establishing paternity allows you to seek visitation rights or even custody of your child.”
The law firm says that establishing paternity is a way for both parents to ensure the child will be protected and cared for, even if the parents are not married. Other benefits to establishing paternity include:
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Long Island City, NY
In Long Island City, NY, when a child is born to unmarried parents, paternity will need to be established. This can be done voluntarily if both parents agree to sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity form. If either parent will not voluntarily sign the form or if there is any doubt as to who the child’s father is, paternity can be established through the court. The court will order DNA testing for paternity. DNA samples will be taken from the child, mother, and alleged father.
Once the court receives DNA test results, the legal father can be determined. If the alleged father is the child’s biological father, an order of filiation will be issued, declaring him the legal father. After the order of filiation is filed, either parent can request child support orders.
