Paternity is the word used to define the state of being someone’s father. If a child is born out of wedlock it may be necessary to file a Motion for Paternity to establish the biological father as the “legal father.” Or if you are not named as the father on your children’s birth certificate a Motion for Paternity is necessary to ensure that you are recognized as the legal father. ┬áIssues regarding custody, visitation and child support often arise in these matters. Once the court establishes paternity it can then decide on issues such as custody, visitation and child support in a similar manner as a divorce case. Amy Cantor has helped many clients navigate the legal system to achieve the desired result in paternity cases.
