West Palm Beach Paternity Attorney
It is very common for parents to have a child before they are married, or for parents to never get married at all. In fact, around 40 percent of children are born out of wedlock, and that percentage has been rising since the 1990s. In many cases, the biological father’s identity is assumed, but not known for certain. Or, if the mother does not for certain, the father may deny being the dad in order to avoid child support payments. A West Palm Beach paternity attorney can help. Here at Bruce S. Rosenwater & Associates, P.A., our paternity attorneys will work with the court to enforce a DNA paternity test, create a child support order, and hold the father to these monthly payments. Or, if you are the father and are seeking visitation rights, we can help you obtain these rights through a paternity test.
Paternity Services For Mothers
It is incredibly difficult for a single mother to raise a child on her own without financial assistance from the father. Yet, millions of mothers are forced to take on extra shifts, work two or more jobs, give up their free time, put aside their own education or aspirations, and make other personal sacrifices because the father of their child refuses to chip in. Sadly, unpaid child support is the norm here in the U.S. Just as common is a father denying his responsibility in the first place by claiming they are not the father. But you can hold him legally accountable by proving his identity with a court-ordered paternity test, which is 99.99 percent accurate and can be used to order child support, whether the father has participated in the upbringing of the child or not.
On the other hand, if an alleged father is demanding visitation or custody rights, and you have reason to believe that he is not the biological father of your child, you can use a paternity test to once and for all put the issue to rest, and ensure that he has no further contact with your child.
Paternity Services For Potential Fathers
Fathers seeking visitation or child custody rights may need to have a court-ordered paternity test in order to prove their identity. In this situation, the child’s DNA, which can be obtained through a court order, is analyzed against your own. After paternity is established, we can then assist you with obtaining visitation or custody rights.
Or, if you have already been paying child support but have reason to believe that the child is not yours, a paternity test can be ordered in this scenario as well. If the child is not yours, child support can be terminated by working with an attorney and the court system.
