Is the filing for establishing paternity time barred in Pennsylvania?
I am pregnant with my husband’s child, but my husband refuses to accept the paternity. I am planning to file a petition in the court for establishing the paternity of this child. Under Pennsylvania law, is there a time period within which I am required to file a petition for establishing the paternity?01/19/2017 | Category: Paternity » Court Action | State: Pennsylvania | #30580
23 Pa.C.S. § 4343 reads:
“(1) An action or proceeding under this chapter to establish the paternity of a child born out of wedlock must be commenced within 18 years of the date of birth of the child.”
