Learn about Establishing Paternity Rights In California
Each of a child’s parents has a responsibility to support the child and a right to maintain a strong parent-child relationship. When a child’s parents are married at the time of his or her birth, the husband is presumed to be the father in the eyes of the law. However, paternity often needs to be established when an unmarried woman has a child. The biological father of a child can be determined through a DNA test. The results of this test can then be used by the court as evidence of paternity.
If you need to establish paternity, my firm, Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation, can help you.
When handling paternity cases, my firm deals primarily with two issues:
- The responsibility of a father to make child support payments to the child’s mother
