Acknowledgement of Paternity
Acknowledgement of Paternity

Paternity Acknowledgment is the name given to the voluntary process of the unwed father being recognized as the biological father of a child (or children), primarily for child support purposes. This is usually signed at the hospital after the child is delivered. Every state has different laws, but basically, when the mother signs the acknowledgement she is verifying that she was unwed at the time of the birth and that the named man is the biological father of the child.

Biological Father
Biological Father
When the father signs the acknowledgement, he agrees that he is the biological father of the child and that he will be responsible for the child's financial and medical support until adulthood. A Paternity Acknowledgement is usually for child support purposes, and the rights pertaining to visitation and custody vary.
Acknowledgement of Paternity
Most states allow a certain period of time (a few days) after the birth of the child before the Acknowledgement of Paternity has to be signed. If you have any doubts about paternity, you can test the child after birth because it is easy and painless.
