Declaration of Non-Parentage Law and Legal Definition

A declaration of non-parentage is an order from a cour stating a man isn't the father of a child. A man can file a Petition for Declaration of Non-Parentage and if the judge rules that he’s not the father, his name will be removed from the birth certificate. If the court makes a declaration of non-parentage, that person will no longer be expected to pay child maintenance for that child.
