What is a Paternity Affidavit?

0

If the father is cooperative and the child was born in the state of Washington, the parents can complete a paternity affidavit to establish a man as the legal father of a child. The paternity affidavit is a notarized statement executed by the father, the mother (and the mother’s husband, if she is married) declaring who the father is. Once the completed paternity affidavit is filed with the Department of Health, then paternity is legally established and the Division of Child Support (DCS) can establish an administrative order of child support. You may call the Division of Child Support at 1-800-442-KIDS (1-800-442-5437) and they will send you the form and an informational booklet without charge. For more information about establishing paternity via a paternity affidavit visit the Division of Child Support (DCS)(external link).

Im not sure what a paternity affidavit is exactly but an affidavit is a document that a person signs and their signature is witnessed by a solicitors/commissioner for Oaths and is a paragraph is read by them to say: ‘I swear by almighty god that this is my name and handwriting and the contents of this my affidavit are true’ so basically they are swearing on the bible that something in the eyes of the law is true….
