Why Establish Paternity?
It is important to establish paternity for the child’s emotional and financial well-being. When paternity is established, the father will be able to exercise his right to be part of the child’s life and will be expected to support the child emotionally and financially.
It’s important to establish paternity so that if anything were to happen to one parent, the child has another parent to look to for support. Often, this is a major factor for the whole extended family, including grandparents.
It enables the child to inherit through both parents upon the death of that parent. If you are the biological father but not the legal father, that child may not inherit through your estate.
When an unmarried couple has a child, the mother’s name is the only one recorded on the birth certificate. If both parents agree, the father’s name can be added, but it will not automatically be added unless the couple is married.
