A paternity lawyer assists unmarried parents of a minor child understand the specific legal rights and responsibilities the parents share. Paternity lawyers will help you understand your options for establishing paternity and make recommendations based on your unique situation.
Unless there is an official acknowledgment about a child’s paternity, a legal action is usually the first step in establishing a legal relationship with the child. Paternity agreements can be established through an agreement between the parents, through blood or DNA testing, or through a court ruling. Once paternity has been established, the rights of legal child custody, parenting time (visitation), and child support may then be pursued.
