Santa Maria & San Luis Obispo Paternity Lawyer
Do You Need to Verify Paternity? Work with our Family Law Attorney
Although establishing paternity can be an extremely sensitive issue, it
is often necessary in order for your child to receive the financial and
legal support he or she needs. If you wish to prove paternity as a father
interested in obtaining
child visitation rights,
child custody rights or a mother in need of
child support, our legal team can help you move toward an effective resolution.
Our services are discreet and private, so you can be confident that your
paternity issue is kept in caring and competent hands.
If a man is established to be any of the following, he is required to pay
Acknowledged father – The father admits paternity or paternity is agreed upon by both parents.
Presumed father – The man was married to the mother when the child was born or conceived;
the man agreed to have his name on the child's birth certificate after
marrying the mother; the man welcomed the child into the home as his own.
Alleged father – An unmarried man who impregnates a woman.
Some ways of confirming paternity is through blood and DNA tests. A court
may order testing for the alleged father through a paternity action. If
the alleged father is uncooperative and refuses testing, he may be declared
the legal father by default.
No matter how complex your case may seem, you can be sure that we will
do everything possible to help you work towards the positive outcome you
desire. Your child deserves to have a father who plays an active role
in his or her life. Our Santa Maria paternity attorney is here to help.
