When it comes to family, nothing is more important than your children. Watching them grow into full adults is a rewarding experience for many. You help them shape their values, get through difficulty and support them in their successes and their failures. They are your legacy.
Unfortunately, some fathers can be denied a hand in raising their child in various circumstances. It is becoming more and more common for a father to want to support the child financially or get visitation rights. If this is the case, a father deserves a chance to prove himself ready and able to help out his child.
On the other hand, some fathers do not want any part of their child's lives. They may be avoiding paying child support, putting a parent in financial straits at the expense of giving the life the child deserves. In the worst circumstances, a father may even deny that he is the biological parent in order to avoid paying child support or other responsibilities.
In both of these situations, the solution involves establishing paternity. This is not as simple as checking a child's birth certificate. The typical way to establish paternity is through genetic testing. After this, you may begin negotiating or litigating your case with the help of an attorney. For fathers looking for involvement in their child's life, visitation, support or even custody is now possible. For parents looking to get child support in past and future, you can file a paternity suit to get the financial assistance your child deserves.
Your child's wellbeing, financial stability and livelihood are the top priority. Whether you are looking for visitation or child support, your child's life will be better because of it. In paternity cases, the assistance of a lawyer can make this process as smooth as possible.
