Establishing paternal identity is a crucial step required to determine and establish the rights and obligations of the parties involved in Child Custody and Child Support disputes.
Parentage is determined at the petition of the mother, father or in some instances the child by filing with the court a Petition to Establish a Parental Relationship. California has certain time limitations on allowing parties to establish the paternity of a child. In order for these rights to be protected as the mother, father or child, you should have an attorney that handles family law matters to give you advice and guidance.
