Welcome back to norfolk perspectives. PATERNITY TESTING, WHEN YOU HEAR THAT, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF? PATERNITY ESTABLISHMENT PROGRAM, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF? THAT’S WHAT WE’RE HEAR TO TALK ABOUT TODAY. LISA BAILEY CAUTHORNE. gt;gt; CAUTHORNE. gt;gt; Bob: PROJECT MANAGER, VIRGINIA PARNT ESTABLISHMENT AND.
Raven campbell, operations manager, health information MANAGEMENT AT CHESAPEAKE REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER. gt;gt; DOING GREAT. gt;gt; Bob: AND TERRY HADDOCK, BIRTH REGISTER. WHAT DOES A BIRTH REGISTER DO? gt;gt; I GO IN AND PROCESS THE WORK SHEET AND PROCESS THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND GET IT READY FOR VITAL RECORDS, AND THEN SEND IT.
All off to richmond and then it comes to the parents. gt;gt; Bob: OKAY, BECAUSE I LET ME GO BACK 33 YEARS, 34 YEARS AGO NOW. THAT’S NOT EVEN SOMETHING I THOUGHT ABOUT. WE WERE MORE FOCUSED ON, AT THAT TIME, BIRTHING CHAIR, BIRTHING ROOM, DRUGS OR NO DRUGS. gt;gt; RIGHT, RIGHT. gt;gt; Bob: AND IT JUST SEEM LIKE IT.
Was the bureaucracy to support that, but it’s much more than THAT, ISN’T IT, LISA? gt;gt; DEFINITELY, DEFINITELY SO. IT’S THE VERY FIRST LEGAL DOCUMENT THAT YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE THAT SETS YOU UP FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. gt;gt; Bob: WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE YOU, THAT’S THE LITTLE I GO. gt;gt; THAT’S THE LITTLE GUY. LET’S PUT IN PERSPECTIVE THAT.
This is really about the child and not about the parents. gt;gt; Bob: OKAY. BECAUSE YOU’RE LOOKING FOR PARENTS’ NAMES. MOM IS THERE, MOM HAS TO BE THERE. gt;gt; YES. gt;gt; Bob: RIGHT? THE LAST TIME I CHECKED. gt;gt; YES, MOM IS THERE. gt;gt; Bob: WE’VE GOT A CHANGING.
Environment now when it comes to dads, don’t we? gt;gt; YES, WE DO, AND IN FACT, 40% OF ALL BIRTHS IN VIRGINIA ARE NOW TO UNMARRIED PARENTS. gt;gt; Bob: AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT THAT’S NO JUDGMENT ON THAT AT ALL. gt;gt; NO. gt;gt; Bob: IT’S JUST A FACT. gt;gt; IT’S A CHANGE IN THE WAY THE WORLD IS.
gt;gt; bob: what has that meant to the john as we would say, the JOHN HANCOCK ON THE FORM? gt;gt; IT BASICALLY MEANS THAT BOTH PARENTS WE WANT BOTH PARENTS TO BE INVOLVED IN A CHILD’S LIFE FOR A LOT OF VARYING REASONS. THERE ARE HEALTH REASONS, YOU KNOW, THAT THE CHILD WOULD KNOW IF THEY DEVELOPED SOME SORT OF A DISEASE. WE COULD GO TO THE FAMILY AND.
Look for some assistance from the medical perspective. FROM A BENEFITS PERSPECTIVE, IF SOMETHING WERE TO HAPPEN TO THAT FATHER AND HIS NAME WAS NOT ON THE CHILD’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE, THAT CHILD WOULD PROBABLY HAVE TO FOREGO SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS, WHICH COULD MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAVING A GREAT PAIR OF TENNIS SHOES AND NOT A GREAT PAIR OF TENNIS.
How Do I See My Kid Los Angeles Child Custody Attorney David Pisarra tells you how
Hey guys, dave pisarra here with mensfamilylaw so we’re gonna talk about the situation where you have a child, you’re not married, so you’re just boyfriend girlfriend, you’re probably on the birth certificate, but maybe you’re not, and she won’t let you see the kid. So here’s the deal. Mom has legal custody of the child and physical custody of the child because she’s the mom. She’s gonna be on the birth certificate. If you’re on the birth certificate you have technically legal custody but the question becomes what’s that really.
Mean in terms of actual day to day operations.you’re gonna have physical custody if mom is allowing you to see the baby, but the problem is when mom wants to move and takes the kid with her you don’t actually have a court order that says you have any time to actually see the child. The police are gonna look at it and say mom’s supposed to be with the baby because the baby is still probably nursing. So if you’ve got that situation where you’re a daddy bu you’re not actually a court ordered dad, paying child support with a court order for.
Visitation, you’re kinda left out in the cold when the kids are really young. so that’s the situation where you’re going to have to file what’s called a paternity suit. Filing for paternity is a really easy thing we just fill out a couple of forms we get mom served, she’s got 30 days to file an answer, and then we can go forward and get a court order for visitation, but that also means you’re probably going to have to pay child support, which if you’re a good dad you probably want to pay anyways and like a lot of my clients you’re.
Probably already paying the rent, buying diapers, putting in food, paying for the utilities and it’s possible that your child support might actually go down. So this can be a good thing for you from a financial standpoint and it’s something that you definitely have to have if you want to make sure you have your rights to see your child.
