California Paternity Matters

The establishment of paternity is a great benefit to a child. It provides the child with the full knowledge of his or her parentage and gives him or her all of the rights and privileges of children born to married parents.

Paternity establishment entitles the child to such benefits as:

  • Child support and visitation rights if the parents live apart
  • Knowledge and access to the established parent’s family history, including medical and health records
  • Access to potential health insurance
  • Legal documentation that verifies parentage
  • Access to any government benefits the established parent may receive
  • Inheritance rights
  • The right to emotional support from the established parent

Once paternity is declared by the courts, the established father is obligated to provide financial support for the child. He also has the legal right to seek custody or visitation rights. If a father disputes the fact that he is the biological parent of the child, he can request DNA testing to determine whether he is responsible for child support.

Paternity may be established by either willingly signing a Declaration of Paternity or through petitioning a judge for a court-ordered declaration.
