Tracy, California - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Tracy, CA

In the state of California, there are several ways to establish a child's legal paternity, also known as parentage. When a child's parents are married at the time of birth, the mother's husband is presumed to be the child's legal father, regardless of whether he is actually the child's biological father.

When the parents are not married, legal paternity can be established by completing and filing a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form or by petitioning the courts for a paternity order. Residents of Tracy can work with the San Joaquin Department of Child Support Services, which assists with locating parents, establishing paternity, enforcing child support orders, and more. The Tracy satellite office is located at 543 W. Grant Line Road, Tracy, CA 95376.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

According to the Family Law Offices of Cherie T. Davis, which serves clients in Tracy and the surrounding area, it's necessary to establish legal paternity before custody and visitation agreements can be enforced. Legal paternity also gives the child the following rights and benefits:

arrow_forward
The right to receive financial support from both parents
arrow_forward
The right to receive benefits from the father, including access to his medical insurance, Social Security and veterans' benefits, and more
arrow_forward
Access to a full family medical history
arrow_forward
The right to receive an inheritance from the father's estate

Who Can Petition the Courts to Establish Paternity?

When unmarried parents do not agree about the identity of a child's biological father, it may be necessary to petition the courts to issue a paternity order. According to Tracy-based Bansmer Law, the parties that are legally able to do this include:

arrow_forward
The child's mother
arrow_forward
The man presumed to be the child's legal father
arrow_forward
A man who believes he is the child's biological father
arrow_forward
A child support or adoption agency

In addition, a child who has reached the age of 18 or a representative of a child who has not yet reached the age of majority can also request a DNA paternity test. It should be noted that if a man wants a paternity test to prove he is a child's father, he must request it within the first two years of the child's life or he will lose legal rights to that child.
