Truth and Consequences: Part I. Disestablishing the Paternity of Non-Marital Children

In some states, there are detailed procedures for challenging paternity acknowledgments; in other states, there is little or no statutory guidance in this area.

This monograph reviews the statutory and case law in this area and offers recommendations for bringing greater fairness and clarity to the process.
