Utah's Uniform Parentage Act

This act was passed by the Utah Senate on Wed (2/11/04). It is most relative to surrogacy cases, but it does have two provisions that are related to father's rights. Although the intent of these provisions may have been for the purposes of updating surrogacy laws, they potentially could impact fathers in other family law cases.

1) Creates a registry for the biological fathers of children in adoption cases.

2) Protects the rights of men who have a father relationship with their children, only to find out they were not the biological father.
