“Parentage” is the recognition of a parent’s legal relationship to a child.
The Parentage Opportunity Program is a voluntary program for eligible parents to establish legal parentage free of charge. This significantly decreases the time and money required to establish legal parentage through the lengthy and expensive court process. A filed Voluntary Declaration of Parentage has the same force and effect as a judgment for parentage issued by a court.
