Experienced Paternity Lawyer
If you are an unmarried mother and are seeking to establish the identity of your child's father, you can petition the child support enforcement agency to order a DNA paternity test. Once the father's identity is confirmed, you will then be able to seek child support.
A father's name on a birth certificate does not entitle him to child custody and visitation rights if he is not married to the mother. If you are a father seeking to play a significant role in your child's life, obtaining a paternity test can give you the legal standing you need.
Whichever side of the paternity issue you are on, we can guide you through all of the necessary legal steps.
