Aurora Alimony Lawyers
Paternity cases may be filed by the mother to legally determine that a man is the father of her child or by a man trying to establish legally that he is the father of a child. Paternity can be established through DNA testing or by an admission of the other party that a certain man is the father of the child in question. Any child born during a marriage is presumed to be the husband’s child, however, this can be challenged with proper proof that another man is actually the child’s father. Of course if you are a woman and trying to get a man to be responsible for his child you will have to file a paternity case against him to legally establish that he is the father.
After paternity has been established, the court will also have to address the issues of child support, visitation and possibly custody of the child. Other times the issue of who may claim the child on their taxes and who has to pay for day care and insurance costs of the child are raised. You need an experienced attorney to represent you at all stages of a paternity case.
