Paternity and Non-Paternity
Many clients need a family lawyer when they have participated in the birth of a child. It is necessary to first, if you have a child, but are not married, get the paternity established? Paternity is established through the court system using several methods. One primary way is identified on the birth certificate; this creates only a presumption that the man named is the father of the child. Paternity testing, accepting the child into the father's home, or providing gifts to the child are other pieces of evidence the court would use in favor of establishing paternity.
In order to protect the future of the child born, and to protect the interests of the parent-child relationship, it is necessary to initiate a Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship and determine the parentage of the child.
