Getting Married to Establish Paternity

If the mother and natural father decide to marry before the child is born, the marriage may create what is called a "presumption of paternity." Unless a parent or some other interested party later challenges that presumption, the man will be considered the legal father of the child.

But remember, it is necessary to establish paternity if you plan to get married after the baby is born. Plans may change, so it is important to give a child a legal father from the beginning.
