family law paternity DNA lawyers
Paternity tests lawsuits and legal actions taken are usually the result of a dispute or uncertainty between a father and mother, or between multiple persons wherein the parentage is unclear. A paternity lawsuit can even arise between a biological father and a man who has taken the role of a father or whom the mother has declared the father. Regardless, it is vital to be represented by the best civil attorney, as California courts have ruled in the past against biological parents or acting parents depending on many factors.


Paternity DNA tests

In some cases, a father or same-sex parent, whether biological or not, may want to establish paternity in order to get child custody or share parentage by way of visitation rights. Mothers will also hire civil lawyers to establish paternity of a biological father who is refusing his parentage. Fathers may also wish to establish paternity to gain child custody. In such cases, legal action must be taken to establish paternity of a parent to obtain child support, rights, or other government benefits.

Lawyers advise establishing paternity for these benefits:

  • Child will know who the parents are
  • Receiving support from both parents
  • Ability to inherit from both parents
  • Ability to receive veteran’s or Social Security benefits, if applicable
  • Access to health insurance coverage, if available
