What is Paternity?

Paternity refers to the legal acknowledgment of a man as the father of a child. This determination holds critical implications for various legal rights and responsibilities, including custody, visitation, and child support. At Mansouri Law Offices, we recognize that each paternity case is unique, and our attorneys are well-versed in the nuances of California paternity law.

Establishing Paternity in California

Establishing paternity is a crucial step that can impact the well-being of the child and the legal rights of both parents. In California, paternity can be established through various methods:

  • Voluntary Declaration of Paternity (VDP): A VDP is a legal document signed by both parents, typically at the hospital when the child is born. This document acknowledges the man as the legal father, ensuring his rights and responsibilities are recognized.
  • Court Order: In cases where paternity is disputed, either parent can petition the court to establish paternity. The court may order genetic testing to determine biological parentage. Our experienced attorneys at Mansouri Law Offices guide clients through this process, ensuring their interests are protected.
  • Marriage: If a child is born to a married couple, the husband is presumed to be the legal father. However, if there are doubts about biological parentage, legal action may be necessary to establish or contest paternity.
  • De Facto Parent: In some cases, a man who has not biologically fathered the child may still be recognized as the legal father if he has assumed the role of a parent and established a significant parent-child relationship.

Our team at Mansouri Law Offices brings a wealth of experience to assist clients in navigating the specific circumstances of their paternity cases. We understand the emotional and legal complexities and work tirelessly to ensure a fair resolution.

How Long Does a Father Have to Establish Paternity?

Timing is critical in paternity cases, and knowing the legal timelines for establishing paternity in California is essential. Generally, there is no strict deadline for establishing paternity, but taking prompt action is crucial to protect your rights and the child's best interests.

  • Before the Child Turns 18: Paternity can be established at any time before the child reaches the age of 18. However, it's advisable to address paternity concerns as early as possible to avoid potential complications and to provide the child with a clear legal identity.
  • During Pregnancy: Ideally, paternity should be addressed during or shortly after the child's birth. This proactive approach ensures that legal matters are resolved promptly, allowing both parents to participate in important decisions affecting the child's life.
  • When Disputes Arise: If paternity is contested or if doubts arise, seeking legal assistance promptly is crucial. Our attorneys at Mansouri Law Offices are adept at handling paternity disputes and can guide clients through the necessary legal processes.
