Paternity

Paternity is an area of family law where we can help parents who have children who were born out-of-wedlock. Declarations of paternity of the fathers are important for issues of child custody, visitation and child support.

Even when a couple is getting along but has a child out-of-wedlock, it is in the best interest of each party to get a written agreement of paternity and custody in the event the relationship does not last. This will make any future transition easier for the child and protect the rights of both parents.
