Paternity

Paternity

If you are married at the time the child is born, you are considered the presumed father and legally have parental rights and duties the moment your child is born. However, if you father a child without being married to their mother, you are considered the alleged father and must take steps towards becoming the legal father. The two most common ways you can establish paternity are by signing an acknowledgment of paternity or obtaining a DNA test. We can help with your case, regardless of your status.
