Representing Mothers And Fathers In Paternity Disputes


Paternity presents extremely important issues for the health and well-being of families. When parties have a child outside of a marriage, a paternity action is crucial to establish custody and visitation rights for both parties. A paternity establishment will also determine each party's respective rights and obligations as to child support.

Even when a father has not been active in a child's life, or the pregnancy, he may be obligated to pay birthing and child care costs, including:

  • Medical expenses and insurance
  • Birth costs
  • Prenatal care
  • Child support

There may also be medical reasons to establish paternity, in addition to the aforementioned issues. Medical insight can be obtained by fully understanding possible inherited conditions. Blood type issues and other transplant options may also become viable if it is known who the genetic father is.

If you or your loved ones are working through any paternity issue, the experience of an attorney is critical.
