How does a Person Appeal a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity?

A voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity may be canceled by either parent within 60 days after the form is signed or before the date of a court proceeding related to the child, whichever is sooner. After the 60 days, the acknowledgment of paternity may be challenged in court only on the basis of fraud, duress or material mistake of fact, which must be established by clear and convincing evidence.
