Our attorneys handle paternity cases,  which are cases where a child has been born to parents who were not married to each other at the time of the birth. This type of action is generally filed on behalf of a mother, to legally establish the financial obligations of the father to support a child, or on behalf of the father, to establish his rights as the father of a child. Paternity actions will include  a Parenting Plan for both parents to follow. We are always mindful of the sensitive nature of paternity actions, so settlement negotiations are handled in a respectful, appropriate and private manner .
