Paternity Issues For Mothers And Fathers
A woman who is not receiving child support from the child’s father may wish to file a petition with the court requesting child support from the child’s biological father. Unless the father’s paternity is established, however, it may not be possible to file for and receive such support. At my firm, I have worked with mothers to help them get much-needed child support for their children.
There is hardly anything more important than your children. Ensuring that you have a say over how those children are raised is significant. By establishing paternity, you can uphold your rights as a father. By proving your fatherhood, you will have obligations as a parent. Still, you can also ensure that your parental rights will be upheld.
For both parties, paternity actions can be resolved through DNA testing. Once this test is completed, the results may be used to request a child support order, prevent an adoption or take other family law actions.
