Experienced Fathers' Rights Attorney

If you have had a child out of wedlock, there may be unanswered questions regarding your rights as a father. You may have been present for the birth of your child and signed the birth certificate. You may have believed that signing the birth certificate was sufficient to create your rights as a parent. Unfortunately, it is not enough.

For a father to have any paternal rights, he must first file for paternity. It is a common misconception that paternity suits necessarily involve DNA testing. Often, a DNA test is not necessary given the weight of other evidence such as the mother agreeing that you are the father of the child.

Once paternity has been established, a father will need to file for custody in a separate proceeding. This will be akin to the child custody and visitation component of a divorce.
