How to Establish Paternity in Pennsburg, PA

In the state of Pennsylvania, legal paternity is different from biological paternity. Experts at the Lento Law Firm, which serves clients in Pennsburg and the surrounding area, explain that a father does not have to be biologically related to a child to be a child's legal father. Generally, when a child is born to parents who aren't married, there are two ways to establish legal paternity:

  1. Voluntary: When both parents agree about the identity of the child's father, they can sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form.
  2. Involuntary: When there is a disagreement about a child's paternity, one party can file a court case. The judge will often require a DNA paternity test. If the test proves the man is the child's biological father, the judge will issue an order of paternity. Once this is done, an order for child support may also be placed.

Pennsburg, Pennsylvania Denial of Paternity

There are some situations when a man may need to deny a claim that he is a child's father. This commonly happens during child support proceedings. If an alleged father denies paternity, the support conference cannot go any further until a DNA paternity test has been conducted. Following the results of the test, the man can either agree that he is the child's father and sign a document of acknowledgment or continue to deny paternity and schedule the case for further court proceedings. If the man admits paternity, a conference is scheduled to determine the amount of child support the man is required to pay. Pennsburg residents would work with the Montgomery County Child Support Office, which is located in Norristown, PA.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity in Pennsburg, PA

While paternity is not automatically established for children born to unmarried parents, there are many good reasons to go through the required steps. According to experts at the Prince Law Offices, P.C., which serves clients in Pennsburg and the surrounding area, one of the benefits of establishing paternity is the child's ability to know both parents' medical history. The child can also potentially receive benefits including Social Security and veteran's benefits.

Once legal paternity is established, the child's father is also responsible for child support, which typically must be paid until the child turns 18. In addition, a child's legal father can petition the courts for visitation and/or custody rights.
