Most people think that establishing paternity entails a DNA test and weeks of waiting for results from a laboratory. While this is true in some cases, there are other ways to establish paternity, or create a “legal” father, in the state of Nevada. For example, both parents of the child can sign and file a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity.
If you are a male and have a child with a woman but do not get married, Nevada law states that the mother is the sole custodian of the child. If you decide to seek custody of the child, the first important step in your case is to establish paternity. It is important to understand the paternity process and your options. The attorneys at McDonald Law Offices, PLLC have a thorough understanding of family law and are here to assist you throughout the process.
Just as they are needed for some custody cases, paternity tests are necessary for some child support cases as well. If you are a mother seeking child support and you were never married to your child’s father, a paternity test is required. There are different methods of initiating a paternity test, and our team of legal professionals can help you get started.
