Establishing a legal relationship with your child can be difficult for a father in certain situations. The mother of your child may use the child as leverage to get more child support payments. Or, sometimes a father denies that a child is his so that he has no legal or financial obligation to the child. Each of these situations can be resolved with the aid of a skilled Paternity Suit Lawyer from Donze and Donze serving Chester County, Pennsylvania and Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
Determining Parentage in Pennsylvania
Many times a father will acknowledge paternity through his actions, behaviors and interactions with the child. Other times he may claim parentage via signing a written, legally binding document. Sometimes however establishing paternity is not always so simplistic. In some situations where the father’s actions do not demonstrate parentage seeking legal recourse is the only way to establish paternity. This will ideally also benefit the child as well as it will be cared for.
A very common method of uncovering parentage is through DNA testing. There are several ways a DNA test can be performed such as through blood tests or oral swab samples. After parentage is established the courts will enter a court ordered child support schedule.
