Once a man has been legally established as the father of a child, a support order can be requested either administratively or through the courts. Contact the Division of Child Support (DCS) or call 1-800-442-KIDS (1-800-442-5437) for information about establishing a child support order and/or establishing paternity for your child. Division of Child Support
Once the completed paternity affidavit is filed with the Department of Health, then paternity is legally established and the Division of Child Support (DCS) can establish an administrative order of child support. You may call the Division of Child Support at 1-800-442-KIDS (1-800-442-5437) and they will send you the form and an informational booklet without charge. For more information about establishing paternity via a paternity affidavit visit the Division of Child Support (DCS). Division of Child Support
. . . someone told the hospital that you were married to the mother, but you were not married to the mother. Call the Division of Child Support (DCS) at 1-800-442-KIDS (1-800-442-5437) and tell them you want to do a "paternity establishment action".
. . . you were married to the mother. Your remedy is a "disestablishment action". Our office does not handle disestablishment actions. If the child is more than 2 years old, a disestablishment action may not be allowed under current Washington state law.
. . . you signed a paternity affidavit which was filed before July 01, 1997. Call the Division of Child Support (DCS) at 1-800-442-KIDS (1-800-442-5437) and tell them you want to do a "paternity establishment action". If the affidavit was filed after that date, you probably want a "rescission action" or a "challenge to the affidavit". A rescission action is easier, but must be done within 60 days of filing the affidavit. Our office cannot do rescission actions or challenges.

Call our Seattle office at (206) 296-9020, tell them you want to vacate a paternity order, and ask for a Request for Case Review. When you return the completed form, it will be reviewed to determine if your orders should be vacated.
