What is the Statute of Limitations for a Paternity Suit in New Jersey?
NJ statutes prevent a paternity action from being brought under P.L. 1983, c. 17 (C. 9:17-38 et seq.) more than five years after the child attains the age of majority. If the father resides in another state, it may be possible to bring a paternity action there, as statutes of limitations vary by state.
