Determining the paternity of a child can have long-lasting consequences for the lives of families and individuals both economically and personally. Paternity is the act of legally establishing the father of a child born out of wedlock.
Paternity law is complex and establishing paternity is the first step toward a mother securing child support for her child. If the mother of a child is unwilling to allow visitation, paternity may be the only recourse a father has to begin visitation with his child. If you are unsure if you are the child’s father, Indiana law requires that you act quickly and follow specific legal procedures to establish or disestablish paternity.
