Colorado law assumes that if two parents are married, the husband is the father of the child, but this can be challenged and if it is not, it may be established per your divorce. In other situations, paternity must be established and there may be a biological father versus a psychological father. This can be done through mutual agreement or a court order. The father may sign a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity, or may be asked to take a paternity test involuntarily, if the mother applies for support through state child support services or public assistance and the father does not voluntarily accept paternity, or the court order such a test at the request of the parties.
