When The First Step Is Establishing Paternity
Establishing paternity and setting up a parenting plan for two parents who were never married can have significant emotional effects on the parents, the child, and extended family.

Establishing paternity allows a child to have a legal relationship with both parents. Generally, a father who is not married to the mother has no legal rights to a child until the court establishes those rights by court order. Such orders will establish each parent’s rights and duties to make decisions for the child. They will also set up child support payments and requirements for health insurance for the child, in addition to a visitation schedule. Most importantly, an establishment of paternity will give a child access to both parents and the right to be supported both emotionally and financially by both parents.
