Zealous Advocacy: Because Your Family Matters



Paternity in general is defined as establishing who the parents are of a minor child.

Determining who is legally the parent of a child provides many benefits to the child as well as establishes a relationship between the parent and the child.

Paternity also raises the issue of child support and possibly child support arrears, which is the payment of past due child support that was never paid. There are also important questions of custody and visitation that must be resolved.
