How to Establish Legal Paternity in Waukesha
Paternity is a legal relationship between a father and his child. According to experts at the Probst Law Offices, which serves clients in the Waukesha area, the simplest way to establish paternity between unmarried couples in Wisconsin is for both parents to sign and file a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgment. This form, which states that the man is the child’s biological parent, is filed with the courts. Once it has been processed, the man is the child’s legal father and can then file for visitation and/or custody rights.
If both parents do not agree to file the acknowledgment, then a court order is needed to establish legal paternity. In this case, the court may order the alleged father to take a paternity test. If the test shows he is the biological father, legal paternity can be established.
