Child Paternity refers to the process of legally establishing who the father of a minor child is through scientific methods. Typically a blood test or DNA swab analysis.
Establishing the paternity of a minor child is important for a number of reasons, such as:
- To provide the child with a needed identity, or to verify a child's identity;
- To help establish a health history of both the Mother and Father for medical care and treatment of the child;
- To establish or disprove paternity for the purpose of determining whether child support is owed;
- To allow the child to be covered by health insurance, social security, inheritance and veteran's benefits;
- Paternity also may allow the parties involved to seek public assistance where they qualify;
- Establishing paternity may entitle such child by succession or inheritance to receive property from his or her biological father.
