To establish paternity any woman who is pregnant or has a child and any man who has reason to believe that he is the father of a child, or any child may bring proceedings to determine the paternity of the child when paternity has not been established. In any proceeding to establish paternity the court may require the child, mother and alleged father to submit to DNA tests. The easiest way is for both parents to sign a form, under oath, stating that the child is theirs.

After paternity is established, a court has to then calculate and order child support payments, health insurance, day-care expenses, visitation and custody as well. The amount of child support is based on both parents' monthly net incomes using guidelines set by state law. It is important for both parents to cooperate with each other, and realize that support is due upon the physical separation of the parents, and their child's need must be dealt with quickly as possible.
