Importance of Paternity
When everything is functioning well within a family, it is easy to ignore
the necessity of legally solidifying family relationships.
Regardless of your current situation, establishing paternity is important
for several reasons:
- As a father, you do not have legal rights until paternity has been established.
- As a mother, you will not receive child support until paternity has been
- If you are unmarried parents living together, it is important to establish
paternity in the event that circumstances change.
- If you are not living together but getting along and sharing in the care
of your child, the dynamics may change negatively when either parent becomes
involved with another person.

help you create a plan that establishes
child custody, and visitation guidelines.
