Paternity

In family law, paternity concerns the legal relationship between a biological father and his children. In the U.S., a man has no legal rights or obligation to his alleged children until paternity has been established. However, if a couple is married at the time of birth, the law presumes the paternity of the father.

Both mothers and alleged fathers can sue for a paternity plea. Many fathers choose to legally establish paternity and claim their parenthood establish visitation rights or custody.

A mother may choose to establish paternity via genetic testing to secure financial support.
