Benefits of Establishing Paternity
Depending on the situation, establishing paternity can be highly beneficial for both the father and the mother of the child, not to mention extremely beneficial to the child. For women who have recently had a child or become pregnant, establishing paternity is crucial in supporting their child and ensuring they grow up with a father figure. On the other hand, if the father of the child wishes to be a part of his child’s life and exercise parental rights, he can establish paternity to fight for visitation or custody.
Paternity affects the following:
If the father of a child wishes to have custody of the child, or is seeking visitation rights, paternity must be verified. Our firm has experience in satisfactorily settling cases involving father's rights and other matters.
Benefits of Disestablishing Paternity
If a client is an alleged father, but wishes to disestablish paternity, there is a window of time according to California law in which he can do so. Disestablishing paternity accomplishes the following:
- Prevention of Support Obligations
- Prevention of Custody Obligations
- Prevention of Parental Rights Obligations
Waiting too long to disestablish paternity may leave the father unable to challenge paternity. If you doubt that you are the father of the child, don’t hesitate to contact our firm.
