Arizona Paternity Lawyer
Paternity is the legal identification of the father of a child. Paternity is often an issue when the parents of a child are not married. Sometimes, even if one party admits they are father of the child and their name is on the birth certificate, legal paternity must still be evaluated by the court if the parents are not married. Once legal paternity is established, the father will gain legal rights to his child and will take on certain responsibilities for supporting his child.
These days, DNA tests are an accepted scientific method of determining paternity. How does DNA testing work? It is a laboratory test thatÂ examinesÂ the genetic material that a child inherits from his or her true parents. The DNA test will compare the data found and calculate the probability that a particular man fathered a certain child. DNA testing is believed to be 99 % accurate and has been a major modern breakthrough in establishing paternity.
