Paternity -- Bringing And Defending

An emotionally charged matter, paternity is essential in seeing that proper custody and support orders are created if there is any question about the parentage of a child. Paternity must be accurately determined and legally established in order to ensure that your rights to see your child or receive the correct amount of child support are preserved.

Whether you are a father who wants to protect your parental rights to child custody and visitation, or a mother who wants to enforce a father's parental obligation of child support, we can help you bring a paternity action necessary to achieving your goals.
