Paternity

about service

Establishing paternity is used to decide who the legal parents of a child are if the parents were not married before child's birth. It also is used by one parent of the child and can be used to determine child custody, visitation, and support issues, as well as change the name of the child and confirm responsibility for expenses associated with pregnancy and birth. Danidoc cannot assist if the parents of the child are under the age of 18 or if the child is not yet born. After collecting information, preparing and gathering all the necessary documents they need to be presented to the court. With the help of us you can finalize your paternity claim. Parents who are not married when a child is born can sign a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity. People who are not married can't agree about parentage, the court may order genetic testing. Usually a child's parentage must be confirmed before you can obtain child support or custody and visitation orders.
