Paternity

Couples finalizing divorce settlements are sometimes faced with difficult decisions when they find themselves in the midst of a child custody dispute. Often, one of the determining factors in reaching an agreement involves paternity. Paternity is a legal action to establish the biological father of the child, setting a precedent for child support obligations, right to inheritance, adoption consent and custody.

Custody resolution can be a complex arena in family proceedings. Olson Law is a child support attorney who will advocate for rightful paternity, assuring recognized parental access rights and financial responsibility for children.

Under Minnesota Law, Paternity Is Established In Two Ways.

Recognizing parentage: A sworn statement by both parents claiming that an identified man is the child's father, this document can be signed anytime, providing the mother is not married to someone else and that the parents are at least 18 years old. Both parents must sign the statement to render it valid.

  • Genetic testing: Collected DNA samples scientifically prove paternity, but the testing may require a court order. Confirmation of parentage is assured when there may be more than one man claiming to be the father of a child.

A Child Support Attorney For Your Paternity Needs

Granting legal paternity can become even more confusing with special circumstances. If you are the mother of a child born out of wedlock, you may need to file an action for paternity to obtain an order determining who the biological father of the child is, and an order for custody, visitation, child support, or birthing expenses you have incurred on behalf of the child. As a child support attorney, our vast experience helps you achieve the ideal outcome.
