Establishing and documenting
Establishing and documenting the biological father of a child may be an important step for everyone involved. As a mother, you may want to hold the father accountable to his obligation to pay child support and have other important goals driven by the welfare of your son or daughter. As a man, you may want a definitive answer as to whether you fathered a child and to exercise your right to a parental relationship. For the father, if you have any doubt the child is actually your biological child, then you MUST take immediate steps to make the determination, because after two (2) years, that child will be legally presumed as your child and you will be financially responsible.
