Historically, childcare parentage laws in the United States have been determined by American state lawmakers who have generally looked to biological ties, marriage, and formal adoption. Recently, however, American parentage laws have become far less uniform, both interstate in singular contexts (like childcare) and intrastate in different contexts (like childcare and child support). This (r)evolution in American parentage laws has been driven by changes in both social behavior and human reproduction technologies, including more nonmarital children; more same sex couples; more reliable paternity testing; and, more available assisted reproduction services.
This one-volume book describes the U.S. parentage law (r)evolution, comments on it, and explores likely future developments. It provides important clarification on this difficult and complex topic.
