Our paternity lawyers can help either mothers or alleged fathers in paternity suits:
Of course, not all cases fit into the above categories. For example, some fathers may want to establish paternity so that their children can get all the legal rights afforded to biological children, such as inheritance.
With many years of experience in a wide range of family law matters, paternity lawyers Susan E. Christiansen and Cristin M. Lowe can handle any child support or custody issue, no matter how complex. They can even deal with paternity cases involving military family law.
No matter which side of a paternity issue you are on, you should know the basics of California paternity laws. Alleged fathers have a limited amount of time in which to act. Once the child turns two years old, the person assumed to be the father can no longer challenge paternity.
