Guidance and Active Support for Essential Legal Steps
It is important to recognize that outside of marriage no legal relationship exists between a biological father and child unless both parents willingly sign and file an Acknowledgment of Paternity form or a legal order is entered. Establishing paternity may be essential to ensuring your child’s well-being in the form of child support, health insurance and a range of other government benefits.
We can assist you with situations and procedures involving:
- DNA testing and other steps required to establish paternity
- Any presence, risk or threat of domestic abuse related to your paternity case
- Interactions with your county’s domestic relations office (DRS) targeted at locating your child’s father or obtaining and enforcing a child support order
- Contesting and seeking modification of child support when circumstances justify such a change
