Establishing Paternitybonnie-kittle-122261

If the parents of a child were not married to each other at the time that the child was born then the child does not have a legal father unless paternity is established. Paternity can be established by operation of law should the father sign a notarized voluntary acknowledgment of paternity or voluntary acknowledgment of paternity, which is witnessed by two individuals and signed under penalty of perjury, or by the Department of Revenue Child Support Enforcement for child support purposes only, or by a court of law after a DNA test establishes the identity of the father.

Establishing paternity gives you the ability to set a parenting plan which will include a time-sharing schedule for the child  as well as seek a court order for child support.
