The Importance Of Establishing Paternity

Establishing paternity is important for mothers to ensure that the father is legally obligated to make child support payments. Establishing paternity is important for fathers seeking child custody and visitation rights. However, establishing paternity is most important for the child or children involved. Legally establishing parentage is the first step necessary to allow fathers to play an important and pivotal role in a child's life.

By establishing paternity, a father can seek to enforce his rights in a variety of matters, including child support, child custody and visitation. If paternity is not established and parents are unmarried, a father cannot exercise these rights.
