Michigan Paternity Revocation
There are three scenarios in which paternity can be revoked under the Revocation of Paternity Act:
- A mother, an acknowledged father (a man who has affirmatively held himself out to be the child’s father by executing an acknowledgement of parentage), an alleged father (a man who by his actions could have fathered the child) or a county prosecutor may seek to revoke an Acknowledgement of Parentage.
- A mother, an alleged father or an affiliated father (a man who has been determined in a court to be the child’s father) may seek to set out aside a court order finding that a particular person is a child’s father.
- A mother, a presumed father (a man who is presumed to be the child’s father by virtue of his marriage to the child’s mother at the time of the child’s conception of birth) or an alleged father may seek to overturn a presumption that a particular person is a child’s father because he was married to the child’s mother when the child was conceived or born.
The Revocation of Paternity act provides details procedures for all three of these scenarios, but even if the procedures are followed, a court can refuse to set aside a paternity determination if it finds that doing so would not be in the best interests of a child.
