Establishing Paternity in California

California Paternity Attorneys

Establish Your Rights as a Father

Both parents have the legal responsibility to support their child financially and the legal right to maintain a strong parent-child relationship. When a child?s parents are married at the time of his or her birth, the husband is presumed to be the father in the eyes of the law. However, paternity often needs to be established when an unmarried woman has a child.

In general, legal paternity is determined through a DNA match between the father and child. This match is considered to create a paternal relationship once the test is accepted by the court. The attorneys at Kaspar & Lugay, LLP, have a strong record of protecting the rights of fathers in the North Bay area.
