  1. You can request a court hearing to establish paternity by court order.

    Paternity can be established at a court or administrative hearing or by default if the man was served notice of a paternity hearing but did not appear. Once paternity is established legally, a child gains legal rights and privileges. Among these may be rights to inheritance, rights to the father’s medical and life insurance benefits, and rights to social security and possibly veterans’ benefits.

    In addition to providing a basis for child support, paternity establishment can provide basic emotional, social, and economic ties between a father and his child. There are strong indications that children whose fathers take active roles in their upbringing lead more successful lives.
