Paternity Proceedings In California
Individuals usually do not fully understand their parental rights when there is no marriage. This misunderstanding could potentially lead to significant problems in a separation. It is critical to work with a skilled lawyer who can protect your rights and walk you through the process.
At the Law and Mediation Office of Jennifer M. Sullivan in Roseville, California, clients depend on honest answers and personal attention throughout their legal matter. Ms. Sullivan has more than 25 years of experience guiding clients through even the most complex family law matters. Her depth of legal understanding and ability to address challenging issues in a succinct manner helps her clients feel more at ease with the legal system.
Simply having your name on the child’s birth certificate does not automatically give you parenting time with your child. Filing a paternity action in court is often a good idea even when parents are in agreement so that each party’s rights are protected. Whether you are seeking conclusive DNA proof of parentage in order to establish custody, receive child support or request a name change for the child, your first step should be to contact a skilled Roseville lawyer.
Unfortunately, many people believe what they hear from friends or see on television. It is always wise to seek the counsel of an experienced, knowledgeable attorney about these matters. By working through the court system, you can ensure that parentage is properly determined and you have the rights and obligations legally available to a recognized biological parent.
