My son was born in wedlock and there was not a question brought

Customer Question

My son was born in wedlock and there was not a question brought forth before the divorce regarding paternity. Can the man who was the biological father come forward, finding out 9 years later and obtain custody?

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Generally, it is possible for biological father to bring an action to establish paternity at any point before the child reaches the age of 18, however, unless the biological father had no knowledge of the fact that he was the biological father of the child for all the years, it is not likely that the biological father will be given more than limited / supervised visitation with the child and only if the court determined that such visitation would be in the best interest of the child.
I wish you the best of luck!
