A paternity action establishes legal rights and responsibilities for a father who is not married to the mother of a child. A family law attorney in West Bend, WI can assist you with establishing paternity, or in arguing that such a determination is not best for the child. The action is started with a petition alleging that the petitioner is the father of the child. The mother may dispute this, and either party may request genetic testing. Unless the court finds that the establishing paternity is not in the best interest of the child, the tests will be ordered. Once paternity has been established, the father has all of the rights and obligations of a legal parent, and custody, placement and child support will be determined by the court. If the parents cannot agree on custody and placement, a Guardian ad Litem will be appointed by the court to recommend an arrangement that is in the best interests of the child. Child support is determined based on the amount of time each parent has placement of the child and each parties' income or earning capacity.
