When an unwed couple has a child, either the mother or the father should bring a paternity action to address various issues between the parents. These issues include:
A paternity case arises when two unwed individuals have a child together and either legal paternity needs to be established or visitation and child support need to be established. Often time unwed parents will remain together after the birth of the child or would come to an oral agreement regarding the welfare of their child. However, most of the time one of the two parents will not abide by the oral agreement or unilaterally changes the oral agreement. When this occurs one of the parents may want to seek legal counsel to petition the Court to enter an order solidifying his/her rights.
