Paternity case saga ongoing for Jay Z

The ongoing paternity case involving Jay Z may interest his Florida fans. The famous rapper is alleged to have fathered a 22-year-old man who has been trying to get paternity testing completed since 2011.

The young man's mother has issued her own statement about the case. While court records show that the young man filed the lawsuit in February 2015, the man's mother said the family has been fighting for years to complete testing, meeting with significant resistance from Jay Z and his lawyers.

According to the mother, Jay Z and his attorneys are currently being investigated in Pennsylvania for allegedly fraudulently changing and removing names on court documents in order to avoid paternity testing. The mother also alleges that the trial court has colluded in the fraudulent actions. The lawsuit was filed by the legal guardian of the young man, as the mother has experienced ongoing and deteriorating health problems.

When a couple is unmarried at the time a child is born, the unmarried father must have his paternity established. This is important if the father wants to have custodial or visitation rights to his child. It is also necessary if the mother wishes to seek an order for child support from the father, and it benefits the child's inheritance rights as well. Paternity may be established if the unmarried father acknowledges it. If he does not, then a mother may seek to establish it by filing a motion requesting paternity testing with the court. If the court grants the motion, then both the putative father and the child will submit to paternity testing, and if the test comes back positive, paternity will be legally established.
