Paternity

In recent years, more and more fathers have relied on paternity actions to protect their parental rights and gain access to the lives of their children.

What is a Paternity Action?

A paternity action is a legal proceeding to determine the biological identity of a child’s father. More often than not, paternity issues arise in cases involving child support, but are important in determining the rights and obligations of each parent when it comes to adoption, inheritance, custody, visitation, healthcare, and other aspects that impact a father’s relationship with his child.
