Paternity in Child Custody and Child Support Cases

Paternity Law is the legal area dealing with establishing or disputing fatherhood (also known as “paternity”).  Common reasons for paternity disputes usually include determining a potential father’s rights and obligations with regard to a child or establishing rights related to inheritance after a death.

Traditionally, a child born to the wife during a marriage under common law is legally presumed to be the husband’s child.  This presumption can sometimes be rebutted through the use of scientific evidence conclusively proving whether the husband is the father or not.
