1. Jackson, Tracey. Applying the Multiple Constituents’ Model and Social Justice Variables to Determine the Constituents’ Perception of the Virginia Putative Father Registry.

Degree: PhD, Public Policy & Administration, 2013, Virginia Commonwealth University

A putative father registry represents a legal option for unmarried males who wish to secure legal notice regarding an adoption proceeding for a child they may have fathered. Putative father registries must balance the interests of the putative father against those of the child, the birth mother, and the adoptive parents. This study utilized a framework adapted from the Multiple Constituency Model and used social justice, as indicated by distributive justice and procedural justice, to determine the perceptions among primary constituency groups of the Virginia Putative Father Registry. This research utilized a mixed-methods approach to analyze qualitative data from focus groups in combination with quantitative results from an online survey. The results of the qualitative analysis revealed eight principal findings: First, nearly all putative fathers were unaware of the existence of putative father registry in general, or the Virginia Putative Father Registry in particular. Second, putative fathers were unaware that sex is legal notice in Virginia. Third, once aware of the concept of a putative father registry, the focus group males had positive opinions about putative father registries and the Virginia Putative Father Registry. Fourth, putative fathers preferred to receive notice through the mail regarding an alleged child. Fifth, putative fathers have a negative opinion of providing notice by posting it in newspapers. Sixth, promoting awareness of putative father registries needs to target male audiences and preferably have an interactive component. Seventh, putative fathers expressed strong positive feelings about knowing about a child they may have fathered being placed for adoption. Finally, single male participants in the focus groups were more convinced about the importance of a putative father registry in comparison to married male participants. Quantitative survey data indicated that putative fathers were perceived as the primary constituent group that would benefit the most from a putative father registry. The safeguard variable was significant as it relates to occupation, putative fathers and birth mothers. The study also found that survey respondents indicated that the general public was not aware of putative father registries, and this perception was borne out in focus group results. Advisors/Committee Members: Susan Gooden.

2. Rivard-Royer, Maude. Le meilleur intérêt de l'enfant, les tests de paternité et le droit civil québécois .

Degree: 2006, Université de Montréal

L'A.D.N. détermine toute fonction nécessaire à la VIe humaine. Les tests d'A.D.N. peuvent identifier presque tous les êtres humains. Exacts et fiables, ces tests ne nécessitent qu'un échantillon minime d'A.D.N. Ils ont chamboulé, non seulement la science, mais aussi le droit. Lorsque ces tests sont utilisés dans un but d'identification génétique (contrairement à un but médical), ceux-ci peuvent établir définitivement des liens filiaux. Comment le droit civil québécois détermine le meilleur intérêt de l'enfant lorsque des tests de paternité sont utilisés comme moyens de preuve de la filiation d'un enfant? Le meilleur intérêt de l'enfant est un concept-clé dans le droit civil québécois. Les règles régissant la filiation légale et la hiérarchie des moyens de preuve pour cette filiation sont aussi affectées. Une étude du droit civil québécois révèle différentes approches afin de déterminer le meilleur intérêt de l'enfant dans les cas de paternité: 1) l'approche de la primauté de la stabilité socio-affective de l'enfant, 2) celle de la primauté de la vérité biologique de l'enfant, et 3) celle dite «personnalisée». L'approche personnalisée pourrait être la plus adaptée puisqu'elle traite chaque enfant comme une personne à part, considère tous les facteurs dans sa vie et pèse les différentes relations entre les parties. L'approche semble répondre aux besoins et à la situation de chaque enfant comme personne unique.; DNA determines all functions necessary to human life. DNA tests can identify almost every human being. Accurate and reliable, these tests need only a minimal quantity of DNA. They have changed radically not only science, but also the law. When used for genetic identification purposes (as opposed to medical), they can establish definitely filial links. How does Québec's civil law determine the best interests of the child when DNA paternity tests are offered as proof of the filiation of a child? The best interests of the child are a key concept in the civil law of Québec. The rules establishing legal filiation and the hierarchy of proof within are also affected. A study of Québec case law reveals different approaches in determining the best interests of the child in paternity cases: 1) the approach preferring the primacy of socio-affective stability of the child, 2) the approach preferring the primacy of biological truth, and, 3) the personalized approach. The personalized approach may be the most appropriate since it treats each child as unique, considers every factor in his or her life and weighs aIl the different relationships between parties. This approach seems to provide for the needs and situation of every child as an individual. Advisors/Committee Members: Knoppers, Bartha Maria (advisor).
