WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PATERNITY/LEGITIMATION
When a child is born out of wedlock, custody is legally with the mother, even if a father’s name is on the child's birth certificate. This can prevent fathers from having legal access to their children through no fault of their own. It also means that a mother may not get the child support she is entitled to for the needs of her child. Paternity/Legitimation establishes the rights and obligations of everyone involved.
