Causes Of Action For Paternity Suits In Illinois

Naperville Paternity Lawyers

Naperville paternity attorney Kevin O'Flaeherty describes the various types of paternity cases in Illinois.

Naperville Paternity Lawyers

In this article, our Illinois paternity attorneys explain the different types of paternity cases in Illinois. The Illinois Parentage Act of 1984 is the source of law relating to children born out of wedlock in Illinois.  It provides for three major categories of cases relating to paternity:

  • Establishment of paternity by agreement of the parents; 
  • Contested cases to establish the father-child relationship; and
  • Contested cases to establish the non-existence of the father-child relationship. 

Our experienced Naperville paternity attorneys have the experienced necessary to put you in the best possible position to succeed in any of these different types of paternity suits.

Who Is The "Presumed Father" According To The Illinois Parentage Act?

Our Naperville paternity lawyers explain the factors courts consider in determining the allocation of parenting time and responsibility.

Paternity attorneys naperville illinois

In this article, our Naperville paternity attorneys explain the concept of a "presumed father" in Illinois paternity cases. A man is presumed to be the father of a child pursuant to the Illinois Parentage Act if:

  • He was married, in a civil union, or in a substantially similar relationship with the mother of the child when the child is born;  
  • He was married, in a civil union, or in a substantially similar relationship with the mother of the child that was terminated within 300 days prior to the  birth of the child; 
  • He was a party to an invalid marriage, civil union, or substantially similar relationship at the time of the child's birth or within 300 days prior to the child's birth, and that relationship was entered into in apparent compliance with the law. 
  • He married the child's mother after the child was born, and as listed as the child's father on the birth certificate.  

The existence of a "presumed father" in a paternity case will have an effect on the standard of proof required to establish the existence or non-existence of a father-child relationship.  The "presumed father" will also be afforded certain rights to notices in cases where another man is alleged to be the father of the child.

Our Naperville Paternity Attorneys Can Assist You With Establishing Paternity By Mutual Consent

Naperville paternity attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains court ordered parenting classes in Illinois.

paternity lawyers naperville Illinois

In this article, our Naperville paternity lawyers explain how to establish paternity by mutual consent. The Illinois Vital Records Act provides that parents who are not married at the time of child birth must be presented with certain forms that will enable them to establish paternity by consent.  These forms must be presented to the parents by the institution that is assisting with the child birth.  

‍If the parents are in agreement regarding establishing the father's paternity, they can execute a petition to establish paternity by mutual consent along with an agreed order establishing paternity, which will be issued by the court..  If there is a "presumed father," as defined above, he must either sign the petition or the mother must submit an affidavit along with the petition testifying that she provided the presumed father with the statutory notice of the petition to which he is entitled by law.   

After the parents file these forms with the appropriate circuit court, the judge will enter the agreed order establishing the paternity of the father.   Our Naperville paternity lawyers will assist you in drafting and filing your consent paternity forms to ensure that the process is smooth, speedy, and cost-effective.
