When discussing the terms “Paternity” and “Fathers’ Rights,” it is essential to understand that establishing such rights affects not only the father but the mother and child as well. As family law attorneys, our firm has been involved with hundreds of such cases over decades. We have represented both fathers and mothers, who have had many legitimate worries involving numerous and varied fact patterns.
Cases involving these matters have ranged from mothers who have suffered abuse and abandonment, who seek safety and need child support, to fathers who have had their rights, even their fatherhood or visitation rights, denied due to parental alienation or the entrance of a new man into the mother’s life. It is also important to note that the above-referenced fact patterns are not gender-specific, as both men and women can transgressions, and many good people have needed our help.
