  • Depending on the age of the client, different issues must be considered in paternity cases. If you are the parent of a minor age girl who is pregnant, a paternity test may be required to secure the child support your daughter and your grandchild will need.
  • We consider both the short term and long term effects a paternity test has on young fathers and refer them to the necessary resources that are available to them in order to fulfill their parental obligations.
  • After the results of a paternity test have been determined, a mother has the right to recover child support obligations that may be due for the healthy care of the child.
  • Conversely, the father is not without rights. In many cases, a father who is ordered to pay child support may pursue custody, visitation, and other parental rights.

If you feel that you have a legitimate paternity suit, we can help explain the laws and how we can help you protect your rights.
