Existing law provides for the establishment of paternity for a child
This bill would provide that if the mother of a child who is lawfully married misrepresents her marital status to an alleged biological father, and the alleged biological father has held the child out as his own during the mother's pregnancy with the child, the presumption of paternity in favor of the mother's husband is rebuttable
This bill would also allow the alleged biological father to petition to establish paternity of the child
Relating to paternity of children; to amend Section 26-17-204, Code of Alabama 1975; to provide further for establishing paternity of a child.
