Parenthood is supposed to be the hard part

A paternity test doesn’t make you a dad, however, courts require paternal testing when settling custodial issues. An attorney is there to handle your case and handle the intricate legal details.

The determination of the paternity of a minor child has legal requirements and implications. These issues may arise when the mother is unmarried or when she is married, but the husband is not the father. Establishing paternity assists with issues involving financial support and other benefits given to children such as:

  • child support
  • health insurance
  • inheritance
  • Social Security and Veteran’s benefits

Failing to establish paternity could cause a father to lose all rights to custody or visitation with his child.
