How Can I file for a Paternity Suit?

The Following persons/bodies can file for a “Petition to Establish Paternity:”

  • The State
  • Mother of Child
  • Alleged Father of Child
  • Legal representative assigned to act on behalf of the child

Paternity is normally determined during a divorce, child support, or child custody case. However outside of such proceedings, others can determine paternity to establish any financial distributions and sharing responsibilities between parents. A judge will order a DNA test once a paternity request is filed, which is done in order to determine who is the biological father.
