Late rapper's child to undergo paternity test

Welcoming a child into the world is a joyous occasion. Florida parents have lots to prepare before bringing baby home. One thing that should be taken care of after a baby is born is to establish paternity. In a recent story, a mother has had to work very hard to do so on her own, because the child's father is deceased. 

What about Dad? The push for paternity leave

Dads are important, and a growing number of lawmakers and advocates would like to see that reflected in new legislation. Though it is surely indisputable that being a father requires hard work and dedication, many employers still do not offer any sort of paternity leave. In fact, the United States is one of the only developed countries that still lacks paid parental leave for new parents. 

Matters of paternity do not always involve minor children

Florida parents know that, when a child is born, there are many legal matters that must be attended to. Custody arrangements and matters of paternity must be handled by a court of law. Establishing paternity is a simple but important step that, if neglected, can affect people far into adulthood.

Florida parents may know that when they are expecting a child, there is more to preparation than buying clothes, blankets and toys. Legally, when a child is born, paternity must be established. If the parents are married, the husband is presumed to be the father. If parents are not married and the child is born out of wedlock, paternity must be established another way. 

Establishing paternity an important part of parenting

Preparing for the birth of a child can be one if the most exciting life experiences a person may have. As the due date grows closer, mothers and fathers might make arrangements to get everything ready ahead of time. Florida parents should be aware, however, that even after a child is born, there are still some important steps to take. One of these is establishing paternity.

Establishing paternity can be an important step for parents

In the state of Florida, if a married couple has a child, the husband is presumed to be the father. In cases where parents are unmarried, or if there is any question as to who is a child's biological father, establishing paternity can be a bit more tricky. Several methods can be used to legally determine who has fathered a child.
