Why Is Establishing Paternity Important?

Once paternity has been established, both unmarried parents are given the same rights as parents who are married. The child benefits immensely from paternity establishment, knowing that he or she will receive emotional support and financial assistance. It also gives the father many legal rights, such as the right for the child to take his last name.

The other benefits of establishing paternity include:

  • Parents get to share responsibility for parenting
  • The children can benefit from both parents’ financial security
  • The children can receive medical insurance under the father
  • The right to have the father’s name on the child’s birth certificate
  • The right to child custody and visitation rights

By establishing paternity, you are also taking on the legal responsibility of being involved in the child’s life. Otherwise, the courts cannot grant you the right to visitation or custody. You have the chance to make critical decisions about the child’s livelihood, including where they will live, where they will attend school, religious preferences, and extracurricular activities as well. As a Bronx paternity lawyers, Attorney Jose Fernando Canosa, Esq understands how important it is for you to be part of your child’s life.
