Paternity Actions

We have represented many married and unmarried clients on paternity issues. The advances in DNA testing have made the determination of paternity a scientific fact. For mothers, the establishment of paternity will enable them to obtain child support to provide better lives for their children. As for fathers, the determination of paternity may solve long-lingering issues regarding fatherhood. The discovery of the unfaithfulness of a wife may raise issues regarding paternity of children of the marriage. DNA testing is a simple procedure involving the drawing of blood under controlled conditions. The blood sample is then sent to a lab for analysis and the completion of a report. For married persons, a determination that a spouse is not the biological parent raises issues beyond child support.  We are experienced in providing advice on such issues.
