    (I) effective 01/01/77, paternity is established by an adjudication before the father's death, using a preponderance of the evidence standard of proof, or is established thereafter by strict, clear and convincing proof, except that paternity established under this provision will not confer the status of parent unless the father has openly treated the child as his and has not refused to support the child.
