Establishing paternity in New Rochelle, NY
Unmarried parents from New Rochelle, NY, must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. They can do so by signing the voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) or by the court. An AOP can be signed right after the child is born at the hospital or any time before the child turns 21. If the parents file the document at the hospital, the staff can help them through the process.
If there are any questions or doubts about paternity, parents usually do not sign the AOP since it is a legally binding document. The mother and the alleged father typically go to court in these cases. The judge will likely order paternity testing of the alleged father and the child to prove the father-child relationship. If paternity is established, then custody, child support, and visitation hours can also be established if necessary.
New Rochelle, New York: Benefits of establishing paternity
Once paternity is established, both mother and father can benefit from it. The mother often feels more financially secure and can share the responsibilities with the father. The father can also share rights and responsibilities with the mother, including making important decisions regarding the child’s health, education, and religious upbringing. The father’s name can be added to the child’s birth certificate, and he obtains the right to seek custody or visitation hours. When legal paternity has been established, both parents must agree before the child is placed for adoption.
The child also benefits from establishing paternity. The child can inherit from the father, gain access to family medical history, have a better sense of identity, and have both parents on the birth certificate. Additionally, the child can receive emotional and financial support from both parents. The child may be entitled to medical insurance, social security, and, if applicable, veterans benefits and military allowances.
