Paternity Legal Services
Paternity must be established when a child is born to unmarried parents before the court can set child support, custody, and visitation orders. At HLS, our attorneys are knowledgeable and efficient when it comes to the legal process of establishing this criteria so that there are no unnecessary delays in your case.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get child support if I am not sure who the child’s biological parent is?
No. Paternity is a legal determination of who the child’s other biological parent is. Paternity must be established before child support can be ordered. DNA tests can be used to determine paternity so that the proper legal steps can then be taken in order to establish support.
