Child Paternity refers to the process of legally establishing who the father of a child is through scientific methods; typically a blood test or DNA swab analysis. Establishing the paternity of a child is important for a number of reasons.
Paternity tests may be requested by either the mother, a father who has concerns about the paternity of their child, a man who is told that he is the father of a child, or a man who suspects a child is his biological offspring but is told the child is not his.
Child Paternity issues often arise in cases involving child support, but they can also be important in relation to adoption, inheritance, custody and visitation, health care, and other issues.

Child paternity is an important process which aids in various legal situations, such as:
- To provide the child with a needed identity, or to verify a child’s identity;
- To help establish a health history of both the Mother and Father for medical care and treatment of the child;
- To establish or disprove paternity for the purpose of determining whether child support is owed;
- To allow the child to be covered by health insurance, social security, inheritance and veteran’s benefits;
- Paternity also may allow the parties involved to seek public assistance where they qualify;
- Establishing paternity may entitle such child by succession or inheritance to receive property from his or her biological father.
