Paternity

Paternity Action Attorney in Boise, Idaho

When parents are not married to each other or when there is reason to question whether a husband is the father of his wife's child, a paternity action is in the child's best interests, and offers legal protection for birth mothers and fathers.

Nontraditional Families ◦ Private Adoptions

We usually think of a paternity action in connection with a nontraditional family that comes about as a result of a non-marital relationship. Paternity determination is also necessary before a private adoption that will require terminating the parental rights of both the father and mother.

When Parents are Domestic Partners

Parents may be cohabiting peacefully and have no plans to separate, yet realize that a paternity determination will be in the best interest of the child. Or parents may have had a sexual relationship that has ended, but which resulted in pregnancy.

Child Support, Custody and Visitation

The mother may wish to establish paternity for the sake of collecting child support, or the father may wish to assert his custody and visitation rights. On the other hand, a named father or an estranged husband may wish to demonstrate he is not, in fact, the biological father of his girlfriend's or wife's baby.

It is important to talk to a lawyer who understands all aspects of family law, including the processes a mother must go through before telling the court she doesn't know who the father is. DNA genetic testing may prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a man is in fact the father of a child.

Discuss your concerns regarding a stepparent adoption, a private adoption, a birth resulting from a rape, surrogate parenthood or any other unusual circumstance that will have lifelong consequences to your child's identity and well-being.
