Three Ways To Establish Paternity For Unmarried Couples.
The first way to establish paternity through involuntary declaration. If the couple agrees to the paternity of the child they can sign a declaration of paternity, and this is usually done at the hospital when the baby is born. Number two the DA’s office, the family support division at DA’s office can file a case to establish paternity and child support at no cost to either party, however, they do not handle custody or visitation matters. And number three, you can file a complaint to establish paternity with the court and the family judge can determine paternity based on DNA testing or other statutory presumptions. The judge usually has to set child support ones paternity is established, and the judge may or may not also decide custody and visitation as part of the case.
