For numerous legal purposes involving your children, it is highly important that you take the time to establish your paternity. When it comes to divorce, establishing paternity can help you obtain the custody and/or visitation rights that you deserve.
Without having your paternity acknowledged, you could be denied the right to remain a part of your child's life. The Kansas Statutes Annotated (K.S.A.) states in § 23-2204 that acknowledgement of paternity creates a permanent relationship between father and child that can only be ended by court order.
Fighting False Accusations of Paternity
On the other hand, you may want to disprove paternity for a child that is not yours. Many times, a mother may attempt to obtain child support or some other benefit by falsely claiming that a man is her child's father. If you are in this situation, don't hesitate to hire an Johnson County divorce attorney to strengthen your defense and present a persuasive argument against such accusations.
K.S.A. § 23-2208 provides a list of things that allow a man to be presumed to be a child's father. At Martin & Wallentine, we could review your case and gather all necessary information to fight for you and prove that you are not the father of a child.
