In some situations, it is necessary for unmarried parents to bring a Paternity action to prove that the child is an offspring of the mother or father. Any mother or suspected father is permitted under the law to bring a Paternity case as is, any child. Paternity is usually determined by a scientific test which can be done by taking and analyzing swabs of a parent and child's saliva. When Paternity is proven, a parent may be able to gain parenting rights, such as decision making and time-sharing. It is always wise to consult with an experienced lawyer regarding a Paternity matter.
