Importance of Establishing Paternity
Establishing paternity gives the child a legal father and the same rights as a child born to married parents. By establishing paternity, the child gets a sense of identity, family ties to both sides of the family, financial support, access to medical histories from the mother and father’s family, and access to benefits, including social security, medical insurance, pensions, inheritance, and veteran’s benefits. Fathers benefit from paternity by obtaining visitation and custody rights to the child, and mothers benefit by receiving financial assistance.
Establishing Paternity in Warren, MI
Unmarried parents in Warren, MI can establish paternity voluntarily if they agree on who the child’s father is. If they do not agree about the father or have any doubts, they can ask the court to establish paternity, which usually involves DNA testing. To establish paternity voluntarily, the parents can sign an Affidavit of Parentage form, either at the hospital when the child is born or at a later date. The form can be signed at the local Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, located at 13041 E 10 Mile Rd in Warren, MI.
Once paternity has been established, the father’s name can be added to the birth certificate and the judge can issue visitation, custody, and child support orders.
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Warren, MI
When unmarried parents in Warren, MI haven’t established paternity, the father can either admit paternity, or the court can order DNA testing. Once DNA testing determines parentage, the court enters a filiation order to establish paternity. In Warren, MI, either parent can ask the court for help with establishing paternity. Either parent may also request DNA testing to prove that the man is the child’s biological father before establishing paternity. At-home DNA tests are not admissible in court. DNA testing must be conducted by a certified laboratory.
