Why Do You Need a Paternity Lawyer in California?

In the state of California, paternity laws are in place to establish the legal father of a child. This is important for a number of reasons, including the fact that the father will be responsible for child support payments.

A paternity lawyer can help to establish the paternity of a child, and they can also help to defend the rights of fathers in court. In some cases, fathers may wish to contest the paternity of a child, and a paternity lawyer can provide them with the legal representation they need.

In other cases, fathers may need to establish their paternity in order to gain custody or visitation rights. Regardless of the situation, a paternity lawyer can help fathers to navigate the legal system and protect their rights.

How Does Paternity Impact a Father, Mother & Child?

Paternity will have a significant impact on the life of a father, mother, and child. It will influence:

  • Child support: whether a father must pay it and whether a mother or guardian of a child is entitled to receive it.
  • Visitation (parenting time): whether a father is entitled to court-ordered visitation time with his child.
  • Custody: whether a father has a claim to joint or sole custody of his child.
