Attorneys Who Know How to Help You



Paternity refers to the legal determination of who is the father of the child. Fatherhood is very rewarding and joyful, but it also carries many responsibilities. A father is responsible for being emotionally involved with the child; to help make decisions about the child’s life, education, and health; and to financially support the child.

When a child is born in a marriage, it is presumed that the husband is the legal father. It is also presumed that an ex-husband is the father of a child for a certain period of time after a divorce is final. But these presumptions are arguable and evidence can be shown to disprove paternity. In some cases, it is unclear who the father is.

A man who does not believe he is the child’s father may want to deny paternity. On the other hand, the mother of a child may want to establish a person’s paternity as to require that the person is accountable for the responsibilities of fatherhood. There are times when a mother refuses to allow a man to participate in the child’s life and denies him the joy and responsibilities of fatherhood. In such cases, the father may want to assert his rights by establishing paternity.

Furthermore, when unmarried persons have children, the rights of the father may need to be resolved through a paternity action. It is not uncommon for unmarried persons to have children in today’s society. When a child is conceived out of wedlock, even though there may no longer be a social stigma associated with such an event, there can be problems involving the parents. They may not always agree on how the child should be raised. They may also argue over custody, visitation, and child support payments.
