ESTABLISHING PATERNITY PACKAGE
Fee: $599

The We The People Establishing Paternity Package can be used to determine who the legal parents of a child are if the parents were not married when the child was born. This Package can be used by either parent of the child and can be used to resolve child custody, visitation, and support issues, as well as change the name of the child and establish responsibility for expenses associated with pregnancy and birth. We The People cannot assist if the parents of the child are under the age of 18 or if the child is not yet born.

If the parents were married when the child was born, the husband is generally considered to be the father. Parents who are not married when a child is born can sign a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity before they leave the hospital, or after. If the Voluntary Declaration of Paternity is not signed, and legal parentage has not been established, a We The People Establishing Paternity Package can be used. When people who are not married can't agree about parentage, the court may order genetic testing.

Usually a child's parentage must be established before you can get child support or custody and visitation orders. You can ask the judge for child support or custody and visitation as part of a case that establishes the parentage of a child. If more immediate assistance is needed, please review the features of the We The People Order to Show Cause Package.

RESPONSE TO ESTABLISHING PATERNITY PACKAGE
Fee: $199

The We The People Response to Establishing Paternity Package can be used if you have been served with a Petition to Establish Parental Relationships and you want to respond by agreeing with the items in the Petition. We The People cannot assist if the parents of the child are under the age of 18 or if the child is not yet born or if you disagree with the items in the Petition and you want to contest the Petition.

  • Response to Petition to Establish Parental Relationship
  • Declaration Under Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enforcement Act
  • Proof of Service by Mail
  • Income and Expense Declaration (if required).

If a Response is not filed, the Court may make orders regarding child support, custody, and visitation based solely on the requests in the Petition to Establish Parental Relationship without taking any other information into consideration.

MORE ABOUT PATERNITY

If the parents were married when the child was born, the husband is generally considered to be the father. Parents who are not married when a child is born can sign a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity before they leave the hospital, or after. If the Voluntary Declaration of Paternity is not signed, and legal parentage has not been established, then either parent may file a complaint (or petition) to establish paternity in court. When people who are not married can't agree about parentage, the court may order genetic testing.

Usually a child's parentage must be established before you can get child support or custody and visitation orders. You can ask the judge for child support or custody and visitation as part of a case that establishes the parentage of a child. Also, in such a situation, the court's determining that the father is the biological father of the child(ren) takes place before the child(ren) is granted rights to receive financial support from the father, inheritance, or become entitled to other benefits through the father.  Also, the court's determining that the father is the biological father of the child(ren) takes place before the biological father is granted legal rights to the child(ren), such as visitation (or parenting time) with the child, or legal right to participate in major decisions regarding the child(ren) such as medical treatment, education or religious training.
