Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Macomb Township, MI
Establishing paternity gives the child a legal father and also gives the father the same rights to his child as he would have if he were married to the mother. Paternity is important for the child to have an identity, family ties, financial support, and certain benefits such as medical benefits, life insurance, and inheritance.
Married parents do not need to establish paternity. In Macomb Township, MI, the husband is assumed to be the father of the child. Unmarried parents, however, must establish paternity for the biological father to become the child’s legal father. Paternity can be established voluntarily if both parents agree about who the father is. If the parents do not agree, they can go to court. In this case, the court will order DNA testing to prove paternity.
Once paternity is established, the father can add his name to the birth certificate.
Kelly & Kelly, P.C., paternity suit lawyers that serve Macomb Township, MI, explain DNA testing by stating, “Genetic testing is used in Michigan paternity suits prior to commencing trial. Blood testing can be voluntary or court-ordered. If a party refuses to take a test, a Michigan family division court may enter a default judgment meaning that the party refusing simply loses by default.”
The law firm explained that DNA testing can give a probability of paternity and exclude a man with a 99 percent or greater likelihood that he’s not the child’s father. “The testing is looking for genetic markers that would have been passed on by the alleged father to the child. A potential father will either be excluded by the test or deemed a high likelihood status of being the father.” If the man is not excluded using DNA testing and the DNA test shows a likelihood that he’s the father, he will either admit to paternity or the case will go to trial.
