Paternity Attorney in Granite Bay

Determining Paternity: Requirements and Steps

Paternity involves anything related to the legal relationship of a biological father and his child. Often times, paternity issues arise from an unmarried couple’s child. In California, the name of the parents on the birth certificate does not assure that those named are, indeed, the parents.

How Is Paternity Determined

If you wish to determine paternity, it is important to first retain the help of an experienced, competent, and compassionate family law attorney from our firm. We will then take the necessary step of filing for a paternity test.

When this happens, the next step is to scientifically confirm paternity via DNA testing. Parents who are unmarried may opt to enter into a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity. If parents do not agree to later confirm parentage via a DNA test, then the court has the right to order a genetic test.

We are our clients' advocate throughout the entire process and are available to answer any questions every step of the way.
