To establish paternity, fathers can provide genetic material or, in some courts, simply admit to being the father in court under oath.
But any rights you receive will come with some responsibility or sacrifice. Fathers who establish paternity in order to obtain custody and visitation rights will also receive a substantial portion of the financial burden of caring for the child or children. Similarly, mothers who want to establish that a certain individual is the child's father, in order to receive child support payments, will also have to allow that person to have regular opportunities for custody and visitation.
