The birth of a child is momentous occasion. But there are times when a father is not sure if a child is in fact his child. This is very difficult situation. Emotionally, we want to believe this child is ours; but it is also not fair for us to support the child of another man’s.
At Timothy J. Mummert, P.A., we help our clients determine if they need a paternity test. In Maryland, both married and unmarried fathers can challenge paternity. There are specific steps that must be followed and these requests must come early in the process. It is important to evaluate this decision early as it is difficult, if not impossible , to challenge paternity after the establishment of child support or a custody order.
