My name is Michael Decker and I'm a lawyer within the law offices of Cohen Decker Pex and Brosh. Today I will explain regarding the process of receiving apaternity decision in Israel. In order to be recognised as the father in Israel, you must go through the court system, you can't do a private paternity test. Therefore if there is consent between the parents and if you submit joint paternity lawsuit by the mother and the father the lawsuit will reach a judge and the judge will basically ask for the response of the state attorney's office. The state attorney's office will then check and make sure that there is no suspicion of Mamzerot which is a Jewish law definition which the courts and the system in Israel want to prevent at all costs and if there is no suspicion of Mamzerot than the position of the state attorney's office will be that a D.N.A. test must be conducted afterwards the court will send an order to a lab in Israel and the lab in Israel will summon the Father and the child to do give D.N.A. samples which can be basically a hair sample or a saliva sample once they give their samples and after the lab will give its results and give an opinion and if the opinion is positive that the father is the father of the child based on science then this opinion will be sent to the judge and the judge will issue a paternity. Decision with this paternity decision you can go to the interior ministry and issue a birth certificate and whereby the father will be registered as a father and the child will be registered as a child this is very significant in Israel for issues of status and also for inheritance rights if you would like to utilize our services in this matter, of course, you can feel free to contact us thank you for your time.
