Paternity & the Military
Issues can arise within a marriage or after the birth of a child that lead to the questioning of paternity. When one of the parents is enlisted in the military, this can prove to be a troubling circumstance and paternity can cause serious issues for a member of the United States military.
If this is a situation you are currently encountering, it is important to enlist the help of a lawyer from my firm. I can discuss the options that are available to you and guide you through the suggested steps you should take. When these questions of paternity arise, it is important to get your questions answered by a knowledgeable lawyer who can enable you to make an educated decision.
What are my options?
When paternity issues come about that concern a member of the military, I can make you aware of your options. One option you have is to acknowledge the paternity by signing the required legal documents. This will update the child's birth certificate to reflect your name as the father.
If you are unsure as to whether you are the father of the child or not, a DNA test can be administered. This can help solidify whether or not you are the biological parent who has passed on his genetics to the child. In either case, it is highly encouraged that you enlist the help of a military divorce lawyer who understands how to handle these situations.
