Can You Sue for False Paternity in California?
Yes, a man can sue the child's mother if she lied about him being the father. According to the statute of limitations in California, filing a petition to disestablish paternity is five years. Therefore, a woman has a legal obligation to tell the correct man he is the child's father.
Our firm can help you establish paternity under the following circumstances:
- Acknowledged father: The man admits paternity/ parents agree on paternity.
- Presumed father: The man agrees to give the child his last name on birth certificate; the man was married to the mother when the child was born or at the time the child was conceived; the man welcomed the child into his home.
- Alleged father: An unmarried man who impregnates a woman.
