Paternity

questions & answers

Question: I have guardianship of 15 year old male who wants to file for paternity but bio-mother is uncooperative. Bio-mother married at time of conception/birth; husband is not bio-father; bio-father has signed voluntary affidavit of paternity. WHAT FORM CAN THE MINOR CHILD FILE TO ESTABLISH PATERNITY? NEED FORM NAME AND NUMBER. I will get it from SSC - just need one simple question answered - WHAT FORM NAME AND NUMBER SHOULD BE FILED? Thank you.

Answer: Unfortunately there is no form name or number for a 15 year old to file paternity, only for the mother or father. You can go to http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/Self-ServiceCenter/Forms/FamilyCourt/fc_drp1.asp to find the forms and packets. You may also want to speak with an attorney to see if the 15 yr old has any rights in determining his paternity.
