Paternity Attorney in Rocklin
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.
