Representing Mothers, Fathers And Prospective Fathers In Paternity Actions
Attorneys Daniel E. Forrest and Paulina Forrest represent clients in various paternity-related matters:
- Mothers — For a mother, not proving an established biological relationship between the father and the child could mean that she does not receive child support payments or have anyone to help raise the child.
- Fathers and prospective fathers — If a father’s biological relationship to a child has not been established, he has no rights, which can work against both parents. A father may be denied custodial and visitation rights. He may also lose his ability to voice his opinions about the child’s upbringing. The mother can even give the child up for adoption without the father’s consent.
