Establishing paternity in Murrieta, California
California law assumes the husband is the father if the parents are married. For unmarried parents, however, it is necessary to establish paternity legally. Parents can establish paternity in Murrieta, California by signing the Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDP), contacting local Child Support Services, or going to court.
Many parents have good relationships and no questions about who is the biological father, so they sign the VDP form once the baby is born, often at the hospital. However, sometimes parents disagree, making it more difficult to establish paternity. They may go to court and have the judge determine paternity. The judge will usually order a DNA test to prove whether the alleged father is the biological father. If the DNA test demonstrates paternity, the judge can consider these results in their decision. Once paternity is established, the judge can also establish child support, visitation hours, or custody if necessary.
Murrieta, CA: Benefits of establishing paternity
One of the most common reasons people establish paternity is to get child support. Sharing financial responsibilities between parents can improve the quality of a child’s life and provide them with more opportunities. It can also give both parents the same rights and responsibilities. For example, the father could sign documents on behalf of the child or be part of the crucial decision-making process in the child’s life, such as upbringing, education, and health. It also gives him the right to ask the court for custody and visitation, which he would not be legally allowed without establishing paternity.
Parents should establish paternity for the child’s benefit, too. Some benefits for the child can include:
Local DNA Stories
The biological parents of 16-year-old “Princess Diane” Ramirez, who lost her life while in a Murrieta foster home in 2018, sued Riverside County for $10 million in 2019 as a result of their daughter’s death. When Diane’s parents separated in 2018, her lifelong home was disrupted and Riverside County placed her in the Michelle Morris Foster Home for disabled children in Murrieta.
Only a month before she died, “Princess Diane” made local headlines when she attended Murrieta Mesa High’s prom with the school’s star quarterback. Despite social workers requesting a new placement, Diane remained in the Morris foster home isolated from her biological parents. By April 2018, Diane’s parents allege, she died as a result of an intestinal obstruction, a condition that could have been treated successfully if the foster home operators had taken her for immediate medical care. The owners of the Morris foster home surrendered their license in May 2019 as investigations continued.
