Divorce is undoubtedly a painful process for all parties involved. In cases when spouses have been unable to come to an agreement and work out the details of their marriage dissolution, conflicts of various kinds may arise. Cases where child custody, alimony and other types of financial questions are discussed must be addressed with the utmost care. If child paternity has not been established legally, the mother of the child is the sole supporter and legally recognized parent, and cannot qualify for alimony or child support from the father. Therefore in many divorce cases the paternity of the child often comes into question, later translating into legal grounds for requests of alimony, child support, visitation rights and child custody. It’s of the utmost importance to have a paternity attorney proficient in the local laws and legal jurisdiction to establish a case that has the largest chances of being held up in case it goes to a court of law. Here at Adam Stein, Attorney & Counselor at Law, our paternity lawyers specialize in various kinds of cases related to child custody, alimony and paternities helping our clients build cases for or against specific claims of paternity.

As a result, you’ll receive full support to help you handle the divorce process with as little disturbance to yourself, other parties, and the child in question.
What Should I Know?
If the child in question was not born in an official marriage, the paternity is not legally established. If the couple was married at the time of birth, the husband is legally presumed to be the father. However, in paternity cases, one of the parties may request paternity recognition or deny it.
