Paternity claim: Kourtney Kardashian faces lawsuit

Resolving paternity claims can become complex and overwhelming. Establishing paternity is not always a cut-and-dry process; seeking legal recourse may be the only way to establish paternity. Celebrity newsreaders in Massachusetts have probably learned recently that reality television star Kourtney Kardashian is facing a legal battle after a paternity lawsuit has been filed by model Michael Girgenti.

The model claims that nine months prior to the birth of Mason Kardashian, he became intimate with Kourtney. Girgenti believes that he is the real father of the child and has reportedly sought custody. Kourtney and the family allegedly released a report in August, revealing the paternity tests results that prove Scott Disick, Kourtney's boyfriend, is the true father of Mason.

Girgenti believes the paternity test was falsified and hopes to run another paternity test as ordered by the court. Kourtney's attorney states that the only contact Kardashian had with the model was during a photo shoot in 2008. Kourtney and her lawyer deny all allegations of intimacy. If the court grants DNA testing in the lawsuit, and the paternity test results are positive, Michael Girgenti will seek joint custody of Mason Kardashian.

Paternity claims and custody cases in Massachusetts may be complicated, but it is important for the individual facing a paternity suit to know rights and legal ramifications of the outcome. The results of a paternity test can have a significant impact on the legal rights and financial obligations of both parties. Each parent may be obligated to a lifelong agreement if the results of a DNA test are positive.
