How is international child custody handled?

There are times when a parent may attempt to sidestep the laws of Massachusetts and take a child out of the country after a divorce. When the child is removed from the country, a previous agreement may no longer be enforceable because the document no longer has jurisdiction. However, there is recourse for a parent in this situation. The Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, which was held in October of 1980, created an agreement between many of the countries of the world to protect the interests of children in this situation.

What is the process of a paternity DNA test?

Some Massachusetts residents who are questioning paternity may be interested in the way it is established. Paternity testing uses DNA from the parents and the child to establish or disprove biological fatherhood. If paternity is proven, the father will be given the rights and responsibilities due him. If not, the father is not legally responsible for the care and sustenance of the child.

Paternity disputes involving related males

Families involved in paternity disputes in Massachusetts might encounter the situation of having two related males as possible fathers to a child. These males can be brothers or father and son, and they might seek the results of DNA testing to identify the real father.
