Establishing Paternity in Oroville, CA

Establishing paternity is the process of determining a child's legal father. Legal parents obtain parental rights and responsibilities, including providing financial support and custody and visitation rights. Establishing paternity also allows the father's name on the birth certificate. Married parents who have a child don't need to take additional steps to establish paternity. In these cases, the husband automatically becomes the child's legal father. However, unmarried parents must establish paternity to have parental rights. The easiest way to establish paternity in Oroville is by signing a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage, a legal form stating the child's legal father. The form is voluntary and free to sign. Parents can sign the form at the hospital when the child is born or later at certain government locations, including the Butte County Child Support Office. The office is located at 78 Table Mountain Boulevard in Oroville. If the parents cannot agree to sign the voluntary form, they can go to court and let the judge determine paternity.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Oroville, CA

Once the parents sign a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage, they waive their rights to a DNA test. So, if there's any doubt about paternity from either parent, they should take a DNA test before signing the form. While establishing paternity in court, the judge may also order DNA testing to determine the child's biological father. However, a DNA test alone doesn't determine legal parentage. The judge will also consider other factors when deciding on a child's legal father.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

In addition to giving both parents parental rights and responsibilities, establishing paternity is essential for the child's well-being. With two legal parents, the child gains access to inheritance, life insurance, social security, veterans' benefits, medical insurance, and other benefits. Most importantly, it gives the child a sense of identity and the chance to establish relationships with both parents.

Oroville parents can find Family Court Services at 1775 Concord Avenue in Chico.
