Paternity proceedings involve unwed parents. Often in paternity proceedings, parents are seeking to establish their right to child support, visitation or custody.
When an unwed woman and man have a child, the mother starts out with full custody and visitation rights. The father must initiate a paternity proceeding for legally establishing himself as the father of the child before he may obtain custody and visitation rights. A mother must establish paternity in order to establish a child support order. Oftentimes, DNA testing will be implemented in order to establish paternity.
