Why Should You Establish Paternity?

For married couples, paternity is fairly straightforward. In other situations, however, paternity may need to be officially established before your case moves forward.

There are a few scenarios where paternity can be contested, including with unmarried and divorced couples. Establishing paternity has benefits, including a legal obligation for financial support and other legal rights, such as inherited health coverage and Social Security benefits for the child. Filing a paternity suit can help parents gain financial or moral responsibility, ensure visitation rights and settle conflict.
