Paternity Actions / Unmarried Parents Attorney
Pasadena Paternity Lawyer
Every parent has rights and responsibilities with regard to their child, which exist even if the child was born to unmarried parents. The child's biological father still has custody and visitation rights, as well as the responsibility for child support to assist with the child's upbringing.
There are some cases where the identity of the father comes into question. In some instances a man may deny his relationship to the child. Paternity tests are used in such cases to determine whether a parental relationship exists. In other cases, a man may claim to be the child's father and request parental rights. Paternity tests can settle the matter with certainty and allow all concerned parties to move forward.
Clearly, there is a lot at stake in a paternity action and the legal issues can be extremely complicated. It is important to have an experienced attorney handling your case to help ensure that your rights are protected.
