Establishing the paternity of a child is extremely important for a variety of reasons.
Importance of establishing paternity for the Mother:
For a single mother, it is hard enough to raise a child without receiving the necessary financial assistance for their child’s basic daily needs. Establishing the paternity of the father will help pursue and secure much-needed child support payments to support the child (or children).
Importance of establishing paternity for the Child:
In addition to the financial support from the father, it is also extremely important so that a child knows who they are… where they come from. This may also help establish a promising relationship between the child and his or her father. Establishing paternity is also important regarding family medical history issues.
Importance of establishing paternity for the Father:
A paternity test for an assumed or suspected father will once and for all prove that the male is, or is not, the biological father of a child. If the man that has been tested is the father, this establishes parental rights and financial responsibility for him as the biological father. If a paternity test shows that the man being tested is not the biological father, this may absolve him of financial responsibility for a child that is not his.
Who can request a paternity test?
A paternity test may be requested by the mother, the assumed or suspected father, the child upon an appropriate and lawful age recognized by the courts, or a guardian that is legally recognized by the courts.
