Guiding You Through The Steps To Establish Paternity

If your name is not on the child's birth certificate, you may choose to sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity form, or you may have to submit to a DNA test to prove you are the father. Our lawyers are familiar with this process and can help you complete it correctly.

After we establish paternity, we can get to work working on a parenting plan, which may include making child support payments to your child's mother.
