Paternity Claims

Paternity cases have become a prominent part of family law with the increasing number of children born out of wedlock. Mediation often works well. It helps the parents establish a basis for making joint decisions and effectively co-parenting their child.

  • Fathers’ rights: I represent men who seek paternity testing to assert their rights to parenting time or custody, as well as men who wish to challenge a paternity claim to prove they are not the father.
  • Mother’s rights: My practice includes representing women in establishing paternity to obtain an order for child support, as well as legal actions to collect arrearages or garnish a father’s wages.
