Determining Parental Responsibilities Through Paternity Cases
In cases where fathers are uncertain about whether or not they are the biological parent to their children, they are able to request the court to order paternity testing. The mother is thereby legally bound to allow paternity testing. In some of these cases, the result of the paternity tests leads to the father being granted full custody of the child.
In any father’s rights case, it is advisable to seek legal representation that will ensure all the legal steps are taken according to proper procedure. At Howard L. Lotven, A Professional Corporation, we have successfully resolved parental rights cases and ensured the best possible outcome for our clients.
We Can Help With Any Paternity Issue
Most paternity cases are focused on the father’s rights. These legal cases can occur when the mother is not allowing the father to see the child, and the father is seeking his rights to be part of the child’s life. In some cases, the father may want to find out if they are indeed the father or not, and are looking to the legal system for help in determining their responsibilities to the child.
Since this type of family law case can prove to be a tricky and complicated process, it is important to consult with a legal professional to ensure the best possible results.
Modifying Past Paternity Legal Decisions
As a law firm, we have experience handling modifications of child custody and child support cases. Many of these cases involve the father not being able to see their child, or the father being granted custodial parent responsibilities due to the mother being deemed an inappropriate custodial parent by the court system.
In either of these scenarios, a modification for the purpose of providing a better living condition for the child is necessary. As a team, we can represent your best interests in a paternity or divorce case. We want to help you work toward your goals — despite complex circumstances.
