Conflicts Related to Paternity
There are numerous reasons why paternity conflicts arise amongst parents. First, an alleged father may want to establish paternity because he is being asked to pay child support or may wish to obtain joint or sole child custody. Second, an alleged father may wish to have visitation rights with his child and may need to prove paternity to get the court to acquiesce to his request. Third, an alleged father may have been forced to sign a voluntary declaration of parentage and would like to revoke his declaration. Finally, a mother may wish to establish the paternity of her child so that she can seek child support.
There are numerous reasons as to why paternity is so important. According to the laws of California when a man is the paternal parent of a child he has certain legal rights and responsibilities. Some of these rights and responsibilities include being able to see and spend time with his child and also having to support his child financially. Whenever these rights are challenged or pose problems, parents may wish to have paternity tests performed so that they can pursue appropriate legal measures.
