Raising a fatherhood or co-motherhood case

A man who has had a sexual relationship with the mother during the period in which she became pregnant generally has the right to have a test to establish whether he is the child's father.

A  woman who gives consent to being the child's co-mother generally has the right to have a test to establish that she is the child's co-mother.

You may raise a fatherhood or co-motherhood case within six months of the child's birth.
