  • What happens in a Paternity Action?

The court determines the legal father of a child. This may or may not be the biological father of the child.
​To make the paternity determination, the court considers factors such as:
1. Marriage of the mother
2. Birth Certificate
3. Biology
4. And most important of all, "The Best Interest of the Child"

  • Can Paternity be terminated?
    If you are not the biological father of a child, you may have options to terminate duties to pay child support. In limited circumstances, the court may order that someone is no longer the legal father of a child and no longer obligated to pay any child support. Note by terminating paternity, the petitioning party loses the ability to request visitation or custody of the child.

    Paternity Actions often include long and frustrating legal actions and court rulings. To learn more about your rights, obligations, and options in a Paternity Action, call Jordan Law Today.
