Establishing Paternity

Paternity is now established simply and certainly through DNA testing. But once parentage is known, a host of other issues arise and decisions must be made regarding custody, visitation, child support, and inheritance. If you are an unmarried father, it is important to secure your visitation rights by acknowledging paternity. In some cases, it is even possible to win custody if it is proven to be in the best interest of the child.

Paternity is a sensitive issue for many families. We work discreetly with mothers and fathers to develop child support and child custody and visitation agreements that are appropriate for each parent. Our goal is to help the parents maintain a positive working relationship to ensure that they are able to work together in the future for the benefit of the child.
