Paternity testing provides scientific evidence of whether a man can be a child’s biological father. Paternity is determined by comparing the child’s DNA with the DNA profile of the alleged father.
A paternity or maternity test can be used to establish the parenthood of an individual for a court case such as child support, social security, or child custody. The test can also be used to support placing a parent’s name on a birth certificate.

The legalities of determining the biological father of the child might not only benefit the child but also the mother and the actual or alleged father. In many cases, the child might not be entitled to the rights of inheritance, wealth, property, social security, etc., from their father if the paternity has not been established legally. For mothers, child support can be a huge help in raising a child as a single parent which can only be possible if the biological father of the child is legally proved, in which case, he would be entitled to support the child with expenses once the mother requests the child support. Regardless of the marital status of the father, he would be legally bound to support the child equally. On the other hand, the alleged father of the child by the mother would be free from all financial responsibilities of the child if the paternity is legally established and he is not the biological father. However, there are no implications if a person wants to support a child which is not biologically his. In the case of separated parents, the visitation or custodial rights of the biological father are also determined by the establishment of paternity. All these legal rights are only accessible once the paternity of the child has been established. Therefore, it is legally as well as beneficially important for the parents and the child to determine the biological father of the child.
Once a child knows his/her biological father, they will have access to all the medical history of both parents and thus can predetermine the vulnerabilities and predisposed harms or diseases that it might face in the future as a result of inherited genes. Also, complete medical insurance is only possible if the paternity of the child is established and thus the medical history of the child and his or her both parents is accessible and known.
