Protect Your Rights as a Father in Northern California

How do I establish paternity?

Father with custody rightsIf you want to exercise or maintain your parental rights as the father of your child, then you must establish paternity. Without doing so, you could find it extremely difficult to uphold any of your legal rights as a parent. Typically, paternity is easily established by both parents filing a signed acknowledgement of paternity to the state court.

In the event that your paternity is disputed, our legal team can help you complete the legal process for proving otherwise. A crucial component of this process will be DNA testing. Once paternity has been legally established, we can pursue your right to visitation, custody, and more. Call us today for more information.
