Paternity is the legal acknowledgement of a parental relationship between a man and a child. Issues regarding a man’s parental obligations usually occur when a child is born out of wedlock. An action for paternity is a lawsuit that can be brought before the family court by either a child’s father or mother. The New Jersey family court system recognizes legal paternity testing to establish or maintain a man’s parental rights including custody, child support and visitation.
Once a demand is filed, a legal paternity test is performed through DNA analysis of both parties.
