Going over some benefits of establishing paternity

For parents, various family law challenges can arise and lead to anxiety and uncertainty. Having said that, there are some things that are within a parent’s control. For example, some parents are able to establish paternity, which can offer a number of benefits. From being able to spend time with a child by establishing legal fatherhood to receiving child support payments from a non-custodial parent, both of a child’s parents may benefit from the establishment of paternity.

There are different ways that paternity is established, whether a DNA test is taken, a paternity form is filled out, or paternity is established at the time a child is born. In addition to the aforementioned advantages, paternity may allow a child to be able to access his or her father’s family medical information and other perks, such as veteran’s benefits and Social Security benefits. Moreover, simply establishing paternity can provide a child and both of his or her parents with peace of mind and a sense of security, which can be especially helpful following a difficult breakup.

If you are trying to decide whether or not you should pursue paternity establishment, it is important to go over the different ways in which establishing paternity could be beneficial, whether you are a non-custodial parent or a custodial parent. Next, you should familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of establishing paternity and work through the process appropriately. For many parents and children alike, paternity establishment has been an incredible blessing and you can read more related to this topic on our custody page.
