A paternity case is a legal proceeding brought to establish a legal father. A father not being legally recognized is typically the result of a child being born out of wedlock. The mother of a child born out of wedlock is the natural guardian of the child and is entitled to primary residential care and custody unless a court order states otherwise. In paternity cases, issues of child support, timesharing, and parental responsibility are some of the issues that arise.
