Paternity Archives

Michigan father taking fight for son to Court of Appeals

Basic family law teaches us that the question of paternity most often comes about when two parents are not married. Unmarried fathers may need to take a paternity test to either prove, or disprove, that they are the father of the child. Things get even more complicated if the child is born as the result of an affair with a married woman.

Michael Jordan at center of paternity dispute

When unmarried parents have a child, there are sometimes additional hurdles to jump through in order to show that the man is, in fact, the biological father of the child. Proof of parentage is important for a number of reasons, including establishing visitation rights or child support responsibilities. But if one parent is not amenable to the paternity determination, a paternity dispute often results.

Paternity could be an issue for Hollywood couple

Like any new father, Kayne West was excited to announce that he and Kim Kardashian are expecting Hollywood's newest baby. But the excitement may soon turn to frustration as the couple deals with complications stemming from Kardashian's marriage to basketball star, Kris Humphries. A paternity dispute in the media spotlight is something the couple probably wants to avoid.

New Michigan paternity test delivers outcomes earlier

There are a number of reasons why someone might request a paternity test. A mother may be seeking child support from the father or a father may want to establish himself as a biological parent. The issues generally only affect unmarried parents, but new technology could play a big role in paternity disputes and other family law matters.

Change in Michigan paternity law gives father a second chance

When parents are not married, there is no assumption of parentage, and it may become necessary to determine the paternity of a child. Under a previous Michigan law, the husband was presumed to be the biological parent of children born during marriage. But this law no longer stands. Michigan's governor recently signed a new law that allows biological fathers the ability to pursue their rights as a parent.
