Establishing Parental Rights & Responsibilities

Fathers are important to all children for practical and emotional reasons. Through a paternity action, the court gives the biological father the rights and duties of a parent.

These rights and responsibilities may include:

  • Child custody
  • Visitation rights
  • Financial support
  • Healthcare
  • Education

Whether acting as their divorce attorney or representing them in a paternity action, we bring our clients a positive, helpful, and energetic approach that they appreciate. We help clients during a difficult time and guide them through the complex legal system to make things a little easier for them.

Resolving Paternity Disputes

When both parties can reach an agreement about the father’s rights and obligations, we can draft a detailed paternity order and parenting plan. We do everything we can to ensure the process is as efficient as possible for our clients.

When the parents are unable to come to an agreement, we can seek assistance from the court in a paternity court action. We encourage our clients to try to resolve differences through negotiation and mediation, and the court requires mediation prior to intervening. A trial is a last resort, but we offer aggressive representation when needed while remaining sensitive to unique issues that influence how each case is handled.
