Why should I establish paternity for my child/ren?
How can I establish paternity?
One way of establishing paternity is at birth. By signing an Acknowledgement of Paternity form at the hospital, you can establish a legal link to your child's father. Paternity can also be established voluntarily or involuntarily through a court order. If you qualify, the Mississippi Department of Human Services Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE) can help you establish a paternal link for your child/ren through genetic testing.
