Child paternity refers to the biological and/or legal father of a child. Proving child paternity is essential in protecting father's rights in any disputes or settlements of child custody, child support, or child visitation after a divorce. It can also influence such things as adoptions, inheritances, health care, etc. Having legal paternity of a child comes with certain father's rights and obligations toward the child(ren), and vise versa. Determining or proving child paternity may be necessary in some cases when fighting for father's rights.
Establishing child paternity is key in having access to father's rights in case of divorce or legal separation. Child paternity makes the relationship between father and child legal and formalized, thus giving the father father's rights in all issues relating to the child. If child paternity is questioned, uncertain or not legally established, the father may not have any claim to father's rights over the child(ren) even if he is the rightful father.
