How to Establish Paternity in Orem, UT
When an Orem child is born to two unmarried Utah parents, the state will only be able to legally recognize the biological mother until paternity is properly established. Paternity establishments are used to legally declare a child’s father in instances where two parents are not married, and provide the father with his paternal rights and the ability to have his name placed on the birth certificate.
Before establishing paternity, it’s important to first complete DNA paternity testing if there is any reasonable doubt about a child’s correct paternity. Once ready to establish paternity, two Orem parents can sign a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity (VDP) at the hospital where the child was born, through the office of Vital Records and Statistics, or at any Utah County health department. Once properly filed, paternity will be established and the father will gain parental rights.
Navigating Denial of Paternity in Orem, UT
In certain cases of paternity establishment, a mother or father may deny a paternity claim, which results in the inability to properly establish paternity. By failing to establish paternity, a child is restricted from receiving benefits from both parental parties, and the biological father cannot possess any paternal rights over his child.
When a parent refuses to establish paternity due to paternity denial, then a petition to establish paternity will need to be made through a Utah County Family Court. Requesting paternity to be established through the court will allow a judge to mandate that the mother and presumed father appear for DNA testing. If DNA testing accurately identifies the father, then paternity will be established and both parents can move forward with child support agreements if necessary.
Laws and Regulations Relating to Paternity in Orem, UT
In March 2021, Utah lawmakers passed a new law requiring biological fathers to be held responsible for half of the out-of-pocket cost their child’s mother incurs over the course of pregnancy and childbirth. H.B. 113 is a first of its kind across the nation, and highlights concerns about the high costs associated with prenatal and childbirth care, which is often left upon the mother in situations where the father is not present. DNA paternity is especially important under this law, as it can help prove a father’s 50% obligation in the event of paternity denial.
