Title:County of Los Angeles v. Christopher W. (Paternity; Child Support ) Court:California Court of Appeal,
Understanding a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity
There are cases which can be more complicated in nature, such as those that involve a man signing a voluntary declaration of paternity only to find out that he may not actually be the biological father of the child. In these situations, the court must determine whether or not the man is legally the father and if the voluntary declaration of paternity is to be set aside or upheld.
Issues such as the child’s age and the length of time that has passed since signing the declaration, as well as the relationship between the man and the child, will be considered. Our top family law attorneys at Walzer Melcher are experienced in the area of parental rights.
