Paternity is a court proceeding to determine whether a person is the father of a child, especially in cases where a child is born out of wedlock.  A paternity test, usually involving DNA identification, is used for determining whether a given man is the biological father of a particular child.  Paternity tests can be used in cases where the parties were not married, or in a divorce where a husband is not sure if he is a child’s father.
