Paternity Proceedings Attorneys in Suffolk County
For Caring & Competent Representation, Call The Meyers Law Group, P.C.
Paternity cases are common, and in some cases, paternity must be legally established before a child support order can be enacted. Our Suffolk County paternity proceedings lawyers have extensive experience handling these types of cases. Since 2004, we have provided every client with dedicated and aggressive legal representation. We work hard to help our clients with every step of the paternity proceedings process and beyond. When you hire The Meyers Lawyer Group, P.C., you can be sure your needs are our number one priority.
There are three ways the courts establish paternity. If children were born while the couple was legally married, it is presumed that the husband is the father. However, if the parents are unmarried at the time of the child’s birth, paternity must be established through an Acknowledgement of Paternity, or AOP. An AOP is especially important for fathers who wish to maintain their parental rights. Thirdly, the court can order a blood or DNA test to establish paternity.
Our paternity lawyer in Suffolk County can help with every step of your paternity proceedings, including:
- Filing an Acknowledgement of Paternity
- Paternity disputes
- Rebuttal of presumed paternity
- Court-ordered paternity testing
Once paternity is legally established, you can begin to deal with legal issues such as child support, custody, and visitation. Though these cases are often emotionally charged, establishing legal paternity benefits everyone involved and helps ensure that both parents are responsible and contributing to the well-being of the children involved.
