Getting a Paternity Test in Wisconsin
Paternity testing is usually ordered by the court following a request by a mother or father. Our attorneys can help with preparing the necessary paperwork and requesting the hearings needed to authorize DNA testing. Collecting the necessary genetic samples typically involves a simple blood test or swab sample from inside the father’s mouth.
Fathers’ Rights and Health/Financial Benefits for Children
Once the court establishes paternity, certain financial obligations and parental rights become subject to enforcement. For fathers, this means the ability/obligation to:
- Seek child custody of a biological son or daughter
- Demand visitation rights through parenting plans
- Challenge an adoption of the child
- Provide medical coverage and health insurance to a child
- Pass an estate to a child (child inheritance rights)
- Collect Social Security Disability or death benefits
- Claim a dependent for tax reporting
We can also help a mother seeking child support from a biological father, whether he is listed on the child’s birth certificate or not. Please note, after paternity is established, a father can be ordered by the court to provide financial support to their child.
