Lawyer in Raleigh NC | Paternity Fraud
Unfortunately, paternity fraud is a problem that occurs frequently in the U.S. Paternity fraud is not a criminal offence in all states of the U.S. To learn more about which states recognize paternity fraud as a criminal offense, contact our attorney in Raleigh NC, today.
In a previous blog post, our lawyer in Raleigh NC talked about paternity testing and the different types of testing available. Today, we are going to focus on another aspect of family law that involves paternity fraud.
When a mother names a man as the biological father of her child because she suspects he is the father or if she names him knowing that he is not the father, it is considered paternity fraud. Choosing not to name a biological father when he is not known is permitted at the time of birth.
