What is the process to determine paternity in Minnesota?


Paternity is used to refer to the legal father of a child. Under Minnesota law, a child of unmarried parents does not have a legal father until the proper legal steps are taken to establish the child's legal father or paternity. Being named on the child's birth certificate alone is not considered enough to establish the legal father or the legal rights and responsibilities that accompany being the legal father of a child. Once the paternity of a child is determined, the legal father has the responsibility to pay child support and can request child custody, visitation rights and parenting time.
