Irvine Paternity Lawyers

Establishing & Contesting Paternity in Orange County, CA

Paternity may be defined as the state of being someone’s father. In family law, it is used to describe the legal state of fatherhood. When paternity is established, a man is recognized as the legal father of a child. He may be responsible for paying child support and may also have custody or visitation rights.

At Sullivan Law & Associates, we have helped men and women across Orange County through paternity proceedings. We have helped fathers gain valuable time with their children, have helped mothers secure child support, and have helped challenge unfounded paternity claims. Whether in establishing or challenging paternity, we have helped shape our clients’ lives and futures. We have fought for their goals and interests, and we are ready to see how we can help you.

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.

Our Irvine paternity attorneys have handled hundreds of cases related to establishing and contesting paternity. We know how to navigate our clients through these proceedings with ease, alleviating the stress they may experience if unrepresented or represented by an inexperienced lawyer. With our reputation and our track record of success in paternity actions, we can competently handle any obstacle that stands in our way to protect your rights.
