Paternity and Child Custody Lawyer in Clinton North Carolina
Legally determining the parentage of a child can be incredibly crucial, especially during child support cases. Paternity is very important to child support because a biological father is typically required to provide support for their child or children. We realize that this can be an incredibly stressful and overwhelming process, so our team at Abogado Guerrero will be there to help you every step of the way to ensure your entire paternity case goes smoothly.
Paternity can be complicated as the laws governing paternity can often be confusing and will typically vary from state to state. For example, each state has a different way of legally classifying the definition of a father. Therefore whether or not a father is liable to pay child support may be decided based on how a state defines paternity. The individual seeking child support will have to prove that the individual is the legal father of the child. This can be achieved by subjecting the alleged father to a paternity test or DNA test. The court could order the individual to undergo a blood or DNA test to prove whether the individual in question is the legal father of a child. If the test results prove that the individual in question is in fact the biological father of the child, then the court can order the individual to pay child support.
The process of determining the legal parentage of an individual in question can be a delicate and emotional situation for all parties involved. Many different situations may warrant a paternity test, but no matter what the circumstance is, our team at Abogado Guerrero will be with you to walk you through every aspect of your unique situation to ensure that everything is handled smoothly and effectively.
