Understanding Paternity Actions

Paternity actions play a crucial role in determining legal rights and responsibilities of parents, especially when it comes to child support, custody, and visitation rights. These actions allow unmarried parents to establish legal paternity, ensuring the child's best interests are protected. Our experienced legal team can guide you through this complex process, ensuring you understand your rights and obligations.

The Importance of Establishing Paternity

Establishing paternity is essential for both the child and the parents involved. It provides numerous benefits, including:

  • Child Support: Legal paternity allows the custodial parent to seek financial support from the non-custodial parent to ensure the child's well-being.
  • Custody and Visitation: Paternity actions help determine custody and visitation rights, providing a legal framework for parents to spend quality time with their child.
  • Inheritance Rights: Establishing paternity ensures the child's right to inherit assets and benefits from both parents.
  • Access to Medical History: Knowing a child's biological father provides crucial information for medical history, genetic conditions, and potential healthcare needs.
