5 Benefits of Establishing Paternity in Alabama

Picture of a father and child walking.If you’re married and your wife has your child, you are automatically the legal father. But if you’re not married, things can get tricky, especially if the mother doesn’t put your name on the birth certificate.

If you’re a father seeking rights, it’s important that you establish your paternity. Establishing paternity can help you obtain the following benefits.

  1. Visitation and child custody rights
  2. Maintaining or establishing a relationship with your children
  3. Children receiving the emotional benefits of knowing both parents
  4. Access to family medical records
  5. The option to provide medical and life insurance to the children

This blog post should not be taken as legal advice. A paternity action will establish your legal right to a child, but it does not guarantee that you will obtain any custodial and/or visitation rights. It is highly recommended that you have legal representation, especially when the Department of Human Resources (DHR) is involved.
