How Is The Father Of A Child Legally Determined?
How is the father of a child legally determined? That’s generally done through an acknowledgment of paternity or a court order. If you or your loved one is facing a paternity issue, please contact my firm and we’ll discuss all of your options during our free consultation.
In the state of New York, paternity must be established when a child is born to unmarried parents. That means if you have a child with your unmarried partner, you will have to establish paternity for the father to be legally recognized. This is important for both mothers and fathers. Mothers need to establish paternity to receive child support, and fathers must establish paternity to get custody or visitation rights. Also, establishing paternity can help the father build a relationship with his child.
This might sound like a confusing process, but The Cimino Law Firm can walk you through it. We have helped mothers and fathers establish paternity for more than 20 years, and we are here to help you as well. Schedule a free consultation today and let our experience work for you.
