Does Wyoming law requires a court order to establish a person as the adjudicated father after having signed an acknowledging paternity?
I wish to sign an acknowledgement of paternity. Under the law prevailing in Wyoming, do a person need a court order establishing him as the adjudicated father after having signed an acknowledgment of paternity?01/18/2017 | Category: Paternity » Acknowledgment | State: Wyoming | #30484
Wyo. Stat. § 14-2-605reads:
“A valid acknowledgment of paternity filed with the state office of vital records is equivalent to an adjudication of paternity of a child and confers upon the acknowledged father all of the rights and duties of a parent.”
Therefore, one does not require to get a court order establishing him as the adjudicated father, if he has signed a valid acknowledgement or paternity.
