According to Illinois.gov, “Paternity” is the legal term used to describe the legal relationship a biological father and his child.

In the State of Illinois, if the birth mother of a child is married, was married, or a civil union at the time of the child’s birth or inside of 300 days prior to the child’s birth, the man the birth mother was in a civil union or to whom she was married to at that time is legally assumed to be the biological father of the child.
