22VAC 40-880-170. Establishing paternity.
In order for the department to establish a child support obligation and to enforce and collect child support payments from a putative father, the father must be determined to be legally responsible for the support of the child. In situations in which a putative father has not been legally determined to be the father of the child, paternity must be established before a child support obligation can be administratively ordered or court ordered. The department pursues paternity establishment in accordance with §§ 20-49.1 through 20-49.9 and 63.1-250.1:2 of the Code of Virginia.
1. The department shall obtain a sworn statement for each child from the mother acknowledging the paternity of the child or children for whom child support is sought.
2. Based on this sworn statement, the department shall attempt to locate the putative father, if necessary, according to the locate time requirements described in Part III (22VAC40-880-140 et seq.) of this chapter.
3. Once the putative father is located, the department shall contact him to determine if he is willing to sign a sworn statement voluntarily acknowledging paternity or to voluntarily submit to genetic testing to determine paternity.
a. The department shall advise the putative father verbally and in writing of his rights and responsibilities regarding child support prior to obtaining a sworn statement of paternity.
b. A putative father who signs a sworn statement of paternity along with an acknowledgement from the mother or who, through genetic testing, is affirmed by at least a 98% probability to be the father of the child is responsible for the financial support of the child or children.
4. When the putative father does not sign a sworn statement of paternity or does not voluntarily submit to genetic testing, the department shall order the putative father to submit to genetic testing. If the putative father refuses to comply with the genetic testing order, the department shall petition the court for a paternity determination when there is sufficient evidence to do so.
5. Within 90 calendar days of locating the putative father, the department shall:
a. Obtain a sworn acknowledgement of paternity or arrange for voluntary or mandatory genetic testing or the purpose of establishing paternity, or
b. File a petition with the court for paternity establishment.
6. In any case where more than one putative father has been identified, the department shall pursue paternity for all putative fathers. [More]
