If a child’s parents are married when the child is born, the husband is legally deemed to be the child’s father. However, the issue can become more complex in the case of unmarried parents. In some situations, the father can sign a form at the hospital wherein he legally acknowledges his paternity. In other situations, DNA testing is needed to determine whether a man is the child’s biological father.
At our firm we have helped parents come to an agreeable resolution regarding a fair amount of child support. In some circumstances, parents are able to settle matters out-of-court, avoiding the need for litigation. In other cases, it is best to have the decision made by a judge. In either of these cases, we will represent the rights of our clients to the fullest.
