Addressing Your Concerns and Questions about Paternity
Do you need to establish custody, child support, and visitation for a child born outside of wedlock?
Are you unable to obtain child support because the father of your child refuses to acknowledge paternity?
Is the mother of your child challenging paternity and refusing to let you spend time with your child?
Are you unable to seek custody of your child because paternity has been called into question?
Are you being forced to pay child support for a child who is not yours?
We Protect Your Parental Rights in Paternity Actions
At Andrew M. Smith, P.A., we work with unmarried parents to establish and enforce the non‑custodial parent’s obligation to pay child support. Our founder, attorney Andrew Smith, also protects both parents’ parental rights, including the right to have a relationship with the child. We will work with you to ensure that the necessary steps are taken to establish paternity. That includes initiating a paternity proceeding and obtaining DNA testing, if paternity has not yet been established or if paternity is challenged.
