As an experienced New Jersey Divorce Attorney I am often asked about paternity rights. When you want to establish paternity rights, you basically want to say that this child is my blood child. Now, you would be able to do that in the court system by filing in what’s called the FD part. In the way the divorce world is separated, we have two major parts, FM, Frank Mary, that’s for people who are married, and FD, Frank David, that’s for people who are not married but they have a child. We have two people and they have a child together; one spouse says, “The child’s not mine.” Go figure. I think we’ve seen some of these shows on TV. The other side says, “Yes, it is.” You’re going to go and you’re going to take a paternity test. They have these companies that will take DNA and blood and figure this out, and they’re literally up to 98% or 99% of success and confidence in saying this particular child is your child. Once you establish paternity, then you go and you can deal with custody and finances, i.e., child support.
