Paternity is a method of solidifying a child’s parentage. A request to establish paternity may be filed by the state, county, or an individual. In a paternity action, the court generally will order DNA tests to establish paternity. The results of the DNA tests will allow the father to seek custody rights and physical placement or visitation with the child. The court will also set child support based on the parents’ incomes and how much physical placement each parent has.
