If you are a mother seeking child support for her child or a father who is being asked to pay child support, you need help confirming paternity. Bhatt Law Group has a team of dedicated Jersey City paternity claims lawyers who understand the laws and how the verification process works. Paternity is used to determine whether an individual is the natural father of a child. After paternity has been confirmed, a father has certain rights and responsibilities.

When is A Man Considered a Father Based on New Jersey Law?

In New Jersey, a man is considered a father when either the court enters a judgment of paternity or judgment of adoption, which declares the man to be the father of the child; or, if the parents are not married, legal paternity is proven by both parents signing a Certificate of Parentage (COP) which is a statement by both parties indicating they believe him to be the child’s father and the filing the COP with the State Registrar. If paternity has not been established, a legal presumption where the court assumes specific things to be true unless evidence is admitted to prove otherwise comes into play. Legal presumptions of paternity come into play:

  • If the parents were married within 300 days of the child’s birth, the husband of the mother at the time of birth is presumed to be the child’s father. This law also presumes the husband as the father if he died or divorced the mother within 300 days before the baby’s birth.
  • Couples who marry after the child’s birth only if the husband tells others that the child is his biological child, he agrees to or is ordered to pay child support, he has his name listed as the father on the child’s birth certificate, or he acknowledges paternity in writing to the state registrar.
  • If the parents are unmarried but the man tells people he is the child’s father and he provides child support before the child’s 18th birthday.
  • A husband who isn’t the biological father will be deemed the father if the biological father and mother sign the COP then the husband and mother sign a Denial of Parentage and file both forms with the State Registrar.
  • A married couple is considered a child’s legal parents if they are married, the husband agrees to artificial insemination, and the insemination is performed by a licensed physician.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
