Paternity vs. Parentage
You will often hear the term “paternity case” and frequently this means the same thing as a parentage case. However, establishing paternity is and should be distinguished as something entirely different than a “parentage case” or a “paternity case.”
Establishing paternity is something that can be done in a parentage case when the paternity of a child is unknown or in question. Before the Court may make orders relating to custody, visitation, or child support, it is required to make a legal finding of paternity.
The Legal Number of Parents
There are many different types of parents and biology does not always dictate who may be legally considered the parent or parents of a child.
California law dictates how many people can be declared parents to any one child. Before 2013, only two persons could be declared parents of a child or children. Now, it is actually possible for more than two people to be declared parents of a child or children.
