Vital points about paternity and Recognition of Parentage

Paternity in Minnesota is a frequent issue that must be navigated for the good of the parents and the child. One issue that must be understood is 'Recognition of Parentage.' This is a document establishing the legal relationship between a man and his child if he is not married to the mother. However, there are other factors to remember, such as its advantages, disadvantages and how it can be undone.

Fathers benefit from the Recognition of Parentage because it gives them the right to ask to have visitation and custody. It lets the child be on the medical and dental insurance of the father, and allows the father to be notified if adoption proceedings begin. It also makes the man the legal father with his name on the birth record. Mothers also benefit from the child having a legal father. It allows the mother to seek financial support and it grants the mother the right to get medical information about the father.
