Mobile, Alabama – DNA Testing
Establishing Paternity in Mobile, AL
Under Alabama law, when two Mobile parents are married at the time of their child’s birth, nothing is required to legally establish paternity. This is because it is presumed that the husband is the child’s biological father. However, Mobile parents who are not married at the time of birth will need to take the necessary steps to establish legal paternity.
As long as both parents agree to and have full confidence in a child’s paternity, the simplest way to establish it is by completing a Petition to Establish Paternity. This legally binding document declares the child’s biological father and grants him paternal rights over his child. If there is any sort of doubt about a child’s paternity, be sure to conduct DNA paternity testing before signing the establishment.
Assistance Establishing Paternity in Mobile, AL
Not always will a presumed parent be willing to establish paternity for reasons such as paternity denial. In the event that a parent cannot get the other parent to agree to establish paternity, he or she will need to file a petition to establish paternity with Mobile County Family Court. This method allows a judge to summon the opposing parent to complete the necessary establishment steps.
In most cases, a Mobile judge will first request that the presumed father complete DNA paternity testing to accurately identify the child’s biological father. If the father is identified, the court can then move forward with the establishment process, as well as any needed child custody or child support agreements.
Experts in Mobile, AL Say…
As previously mentioned, following the paternity establishment process, two parents can also move forward with a child support payment request. According to Mobile Family Law Attorney Alison Baxter Herlihy, Alabama law requires the noncustodial parent to be held responsible for paying the other parent who has sole or primary physical custody of the child or children.
This law enables whoever has the child living with them in their home full-time to receive a monthly amount to help cover expenses. A monthly child support amount will be calculated by the courts using factors such as income and pre-existing children.
