How to Establish Paternity in Wytheville

There are several options for unmarried parents in Wytheville, Virginia to establish legal paternity. The simplest is for both parents to sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form. Once this form is processed, the man is recognized as the child's legal father. However, to use this form, both parents must agree about the identity of the child's father. Otherwise, either parent can file a paternity claim with their local Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court or Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE). The Wythe Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court is located at 225 South 4th Street Suite 204 Wytheville, VA 24382-2595.

The Role of DNA in VA Paternity Tests

In some cases, genetic testing may be needed to prove the identity of a child's biological father. According to experts at Pennington Law Firm, which serves clients in Wytheville and the surrounding area, DNA testing is 99% accurate. When there is a dispute over a child's paternity, a DNA test can prove whether there is a biological relationship between a man and a child. DNA testing can be done voluntarily or may be ordered by the courts. Often, courts will review the results of a DNA test before issuing a ruling to establish a child's legal paternity.

Why Establish Paternity in Wytheville?

Health history - a child is more likely to understand their full health history when the father is involved in their life.
Important rights - if the father is disabled or dies, the child has the right to receive an inheritance and may also receive Social Security and/or Veterans' benefits based on the father's record.
