Parental Rights and Responsibilities: Establishing Paternity

There are a variety of situations that could lead to the need to establish paternity through DNA testing. These include cases in which a child is born, and the father does not acknowledge paternity, doubts that he is the biological father, or is unaware that he fathered a child.

There are also cases in which the father of a child wants to participate in the life and upbringing of the child, and has not been legally acknowledged as the biological father, and parental rights must be sought through the court system. Looking for a lawyer for a paternity case in Palm Desert, CA? At my firm, the Law Office of Lawrence W. Novack, I have decades of experience in family law, and can assist in all matters related to paternity.

DNA Testing and Paternity

Searching for a lawyer for a paternity case in Palm Desert? When the father of a child is not established as being the biological father, it can be impossible to gain access to the child, or to share in the care and upbringing of the child through visitation or shared custody. Many fathers want to participate in the care of a child, even if the mother does not wish this to occur. It could be necessary to get a court order for DNA testing in order to prove paternity and get parental rights granted for the father. Conversely, there are some fathers that are not willing to take responsibility for a child, or claim to not be the biological father. In these cases, a mother can ask the court for DNA testing so that the father can be forced to pay child support and other parental duties.
