Biological fatherhood and DNA paternity testing

In Ohio and across the United States, some men are surprised upon learning that their former domestic partners or spouses are pregnant. A DNA paternity test is often used by the court to find out whether the man must pay child support. In cases where the parents of a child are unmarried, the supposed father is not necessarily the child's legal father. Instead, the law refers to him as the child's "alleged father" unless a DNA paternity test proves otherwise.

Child visitation rights and abusive parents

In Ohio and across the United States, divorced parents need to have concerns about what constitutes the best interests of their child. Courts have legal obligations to make sure children are safe. Any divorced parent who thinks their ex-spouse is a threat to their child should petition the court. A judge will typically conduct a thorough investigation when a parent states that the ex-spouse is abusing or threatening the child. If appropriate, the court may decide to remove a parent's visitation rights.
