Protecting The Rights And Best Interests Of Parents And Children
In paternity disputes, DNA tests usually provide compelling evidence regardless of whether the father or mother filed the original action.
Paternity law deals with a father’s parental rights. If the test results indicate the male is the father, there is rarely a way he can be prevented from sharing in his child’s life through some form of custody, visitation or “time sharing” rights.
Similarly, the custodial parent can often obtain the legal right to receive regular child support payments.
As your lawyer, I will explain your rights regarding paternity and provide effective advocacy. Once paternity is established, parents remain legally responsible until the child is 18 years of age or becomes emancipated. I can provide direction while advocating for you in hearings and in court.
