Greensboro Family Attorney
Many times custody cases come out of divorce cases. These can have to do with determining the paternity of a child. A civil action to determine the paternity of a child born out of wedlock may be brought by the child’s father, the child’s mother or personal representative, the child by himself, or through a guardian ad litem, the director of social services, or a child support agent.
The child is not required to be a party in the civil action. If a civil action to establish paternity is commenced after the putative father’s death, the putative father’s personal representative or the administrator of the estate is a necessary party.
