Establishing paternity of a child for unmarried parents can be a very important process in helping both parties understand the rights and duties they have under California law. It can also be a very sensitive issue which has major ramifications on your life. As a father, you deserve to have your rights established and recognized, which is why we will treat your case with the urgency and personalized attention it deserves.
If you have been told you are the parent of a child but you are not sure if the child is biologically yours, it is crucial you contact a San Jose paternity lawyer you can trust. That is because establishing and disputing parental rights can be legally complicated with a heavy reliance on case law and persuasive arguing. At F&R Law Group, we can help guide you through the delicate process of disputing or establishing paternity.
Fathers who have established paternity may have many parental rights, including visitation with their child, child support, decision making authority, and more. This is true so long as you continue to hold parental rights. If you were to have these rights stripped due to criminal activity, incidents of domestic violence, or other reasons, you may no longer have any right to see or help raise your child, even if your paternity has been established. As you can imagine, it is incredibly important you have these rights established as early on as possible, because this is as early as you will be able to have an impact on your child’s life.
