One of the most sensitive family law issues we deal with is that pertaining to the paternity of a child. Fathers should know that if you are unmarried when the child is born, the Mother is the only legal parent the child has unless you take steps to be declared the biological and legal father of the child. Unmarried mothers should establish the paternity of the father including his obligation to pay child support, and a schedule for his time-sharing with the child. If a child is born during an intact marriage, the spouse is the legal parent of the child even if he is not the biological father. Let Hilary Creary, P.A. help you to understand and navigate establishing paternity.
Disestablishment of Paternity
If an unmarried man is legally determined to be the father of a child and later he discovers new evidence that he is not the child’s father, he may seek to disestablish his paternity.
