Creating A Paternity Claim
If you’re considering filing a paternity suit, it’s important to understand the process and what to expect. First, you will need to establish paternity through a DNA test. You can get this test through a private company or the court system. After your paternity test, we will help you file a petition through the court to begin the legal process. Our firm will help you to have everything you need to serve the notice to the father. Once everything is in order, you’ll attend a hearing before a judge to finalize the paternity suit. At this hearing, the paternity test results will be presented, making your case for why the father should be held responsible for child support. Then, if the paternity suit is successful, child support will be granted through the court.
