Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Stansbury Park, UT
Paternity means legal fatherhood, and married fathers become the child’s legal father without the need to establish paternity. In Stansbury Park, UT, if the parents are not married when the child is born, paternity must be established for the child to have a legal father.
Two parents can choose to establish paternity voluntarily by signing a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity. The parents can also file a judgment of paternity case through the court. In this case, you are asking the judge to decide if the man is the child’s father, and the judge may also give orders regarding custody, visitation, and child support.
In many cases, DNA testing is used to prove paternity. DNA testing can be done voluntarily if the mother and alleged father agree to test. If they do not agree, DNA testing may be ordered by the judge. DNA testing cannot be ordered on an unborn child and testing will be done when the child is born.
Topham Family Law, PLLC, serving Stansbury Park and Tooele County, explains the importance of establishing paternity by saying, “In addition to offering additional knowledge, and a certain level of comfort for both parents, establishing legal paternity is important for a variety of other reasons. If two parents are not married, it is a good idea to establish legal paternity even if they are dating or living together at the time.” The law firm explains that paternity should be established for custody and visitation orders and child support orders.
In addition, modification of these orders is sometimes necessary. “Once an order regarding children is established, it is not necessarily set in stone,” the law firm added. “Circumstances change and what was once in the best interest of the child, may not be in the best interest of the child now. Likewise, what the parties were previously earning may have changed and the support that was ordered is no longer appropriate. In these cases, you can petition the court to modify the previous orders.”
