When the paternity of a child is in question, it can lead to an ugly situation within the family, dealing with which rationally can be difficult. It is in your best interest to consult a paternity attorney from the outset so that you can make informed decisions that protect your rights and also ensures you get a favorable outcome.
We will help you gather the facts of your case to determine how the courts will likely evaluate your paternity case.
Under family law, there are certain situations where paternity is presumed, including
- The child was born after his birth mother got married to the man
- The child was born before the marriage but the man took legal parentage
- Both spouses acknowledged the paternity in writing
However, presumptions don’t hold up in the court of law and if there is any doubt over the paternity of your child, the father will have to undergo testing to prove it. In case if the paternity is not determined, it may lead to a host of other legal issues, including
- Child custody
- Child support
