Representing Men And Women
We will represent either side in a paternity action, whether you are the mother or father, or whether you are seeking to establish or refute paternity. We will prepare and file all necessary documentation to complete the process and will act as your counsel in all proceedings or hearings.
A determination of paternity customarily brings with it additional rights and requests. If you are the mother seeking to establish paternity for child support, we will take all legal measures to protect your interests, including the review of any proposed child support order for compliance with California guidelines. If you are the putative father, we will work to protect your rights regarding custody of and visitation with your minor child.
