This brochure was revised by staff within OCS and the Paternity Enhancement Program. The brochure is typically distributed by local health departments and hospitals or birthing facilities to unmarried parents to provide information regarding the process to establish paternity in Ohio and the "Acknowledgment of Paternity Affidavit." The CSEA may also distribute the JFS 08079 to individuals, when appropriate.
Changes from the prior brochure include: use a question-and-answer format to explain the paternity establishment process; add a description of the "Acknowledgment of Paternity Affidavit"; add a definition of "paternity"; and update the images.
