Many times a single or unmarried mother will want to establish the paternity of her child. It is also not uncommon for estranged fathers to force their relationship with their child proven or disproved.
Paternity is the legal recognition (in court) of who the biological father of the child is. This legal relationship of father to child also includes his responsibilities to that child and can even allow for visitation rights if the parents are estranged.
Reasons for establishing paternity include:
Being released from child support orders for a child you did not biologically father
Establishing legal grounds for child support
Determination of child custody rights
Establishing a visitation schedule to allow a parent to be involved with their child
Make available the parental health history that may affect the child
