Parents come to us in many different situations. Some are ending a committed relationship with their child's other parent and need to divide assets as well as address the issues regarding their children. Others do not have relationships with the other parent and need our lawyer's help establishing their parental rights.
We understand the emotional, financial and legal issues involved in paternity disputes. Taking the time to listen to your concerns, we will provide real solutions when you need guidance regarding:
- Child support - Raising a child alone is incredibly difficult. If your child's other parent has shirked his or her financial responsibility, we will help you establish paternity and obtain child support.
- Incorrectly identified fathers - You should not be held financially accountable for a child that is not yours. If you have been sued in a paternity dispute and are not the father of the child, it is important to protect your rights. We will represent you in Ross Hearings to protect your rights and meet the child's needs.
- Custody and visitation rights - Sometimes, parents are expected to pay child support but they are never given the opportunity to form a relationship with the child. We can help you reach a parenting time and visitation agreement in these situations.
