Burbank Paternity Attorney
At Cutter & Lax, we understand the implications and importance of helping clients who are struggling with paternity issues. No matter whether you are a father who is seeking to prove paternity of your child(ren), are a mother who is attempting to prove paternity to seek rightful child support or otherwise, you can trust in the legal experience of our firm. Paternity cases involve the court making a legal declaration for who a child's legal and rightful parents are - this can affect everything from custody to visitation rights to child support.
In most divorce and family law cases, paternity is of little question. If, however, there are doubts or if the parents were unmarried and are unsure, it can cause significant complications. Establishing parentage can completely change the trajectory of any given family law case and it is important that you have a lawyer on your side to represent your best interests. In cases where an individual does not admit to being a parent, the court will require the mother, child and alleged father to submit to genetic testing.
