If you are seeking to establish paternity for your child, we can help guide you through the process.

This is not only important for his or her social identity, but for legal reasons as well. Find out more about establishing paternity by calling Franklin family lawyers.

In Tennessee, paternity can be established in one of two ways:

  • Voluntarily: The parties can enter into an agreement establishing paternity.
  • Involuntarily: In some cases paternity is not agreed upon, and the Court can order a DNA test to verify paternity. Once the DNA has been tested and the parentage of the father is confirmed, the court will issue an order to add the father's name to the child's birth certificate.

Importance of Establishing Paternity

When you legally establish paternity, your child can access the father's family medical history, medical insurance, veteran's benefits, social security benefits, inheritance, and more. The father is also able to begin cultivating a relationship with your child. This is crucial to the healthy emotional, physical, and social development of a child. If the parties cannot agree on a parenting schedule the Court will establish one.
