San Francisco Paternity Lawyer

California Family Attorney

All parents, both mothers and fathers, have the responsibility of caring for their children. In a case of a child born out of wedlock, it may be necessary to make a request of the court to prove the father’s accountability. Or, it may be a case of the father desiring his legal rights as a parent. The court is also a means of resolving child custody, visitation and support concerns. To do this you will need a San Francisco paternity lawyer from our law offices.

Paternity can be easily established with a DNA test from a blood draw or a cheek swab from both parents and the child. The test can definitely rule out anyone who is not the father or show a probability of paternity. The probability is typically 95 to 99 percent and that is admissible in court.

There are legal and emotional rights that are available for the child once paternity is established.

If you are a single mother desiring financial and emotional support for your child or if you are a father wishing to take an active role in your child’s life, you need to contact a San Francisco paternity attorney. The Law Offices of Randall A. Richmond have successfully represented both mothers and fathers in paternity cases for many years. As in all legal proceedings that involve children, we will work to achieve what is in their best interests.

As there is a time limit on such actions in the state of California, it is important to speak with an experienced San Francisco family lawyer as soon as possible. Call us today and we will be happy to answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease.
