Voluntary Establishment of Paternity in Arizona
Some people may believe paternity can only be legally established by filing a case in court and having a judge decide the issue after DNA testing is done or other proof is submitted to the court.

These methods are referred to as a voluntary establishment of paternity and are discussed in the videos below.
