For a variety of reasons, it can be vital for a child’s well being to legally establish who his or her parents are.
Parentage cases are the vehicle which the court uses to establish who the legal parents of a child are, thus bestowing upon both the child & parents certain rights and privileges.
If the parents of a child are married or are registered domestic partners when a child is born then parentage is usually automatically established. In other cases, particularly in the case of unmarried parents, parentage needs to be established legally.
