What is paternity action?

[dropcap type=”circle” color=”#ffffff” background=”#555555″]Q[/dropcap] And also , what rights does he have if he picks my child up from school and doesn’t agree to give him back? Is he able to do this?

[dropcap type=”circle” color=”#ffffff” background=”#ef7f2c”]A[/dropcap] A paternity action is when a Father who never married a Mother establishes his rights and responsibilities to his child. This type of action establishes things like time sharing schedule with the child, child support, and holidays, to name a few things. If there is no court order determining him the Father, he has no rights when he picks up the child from school. The Mother can ask the court for a pickup order as she has a superior right to the child.

Good luck!
