Los Angeles Attorney Handling Paternity, Custody And Child Support
The law recognizes that both parents have the right to spend time with their child and the responsibility to support their child. When a child is born out of wedlock, however, the only way to guarantee those rights and responsibilities is to legally establish parental rights. Our lawyer can help you as a single parent establish paternity in order to obtain child support and child custody.
Issues of paternity can be filled with emotion and very difficult for both parents. As a single parent, the other parent of your child may refuse to give you support, seek unreasonable support, deny responsibility for your child or may seek to block you from seeing your child. We understand how painful this can be, and we will help you through the process, fighting for your rights.
Legal Issues And Parental Rights
The legal issues involved in paternity matters are extensive and can include:
- Child support
- Child custody and visitation
- Tax issues
- Domestic partnerships
- Cohabitation and nonmarital relationships
We will help you get the necessary DNA tests in order to establish or deny paternity, if necessary. Our knowledge of family law and your rights within it will give you the advantage you need. We offer discreet, reliable, effective and vigorous representation in order to achieve your desired outcome.
