Missouri Parentage Testing Attorneys
When a child is born in wedlock, the law assumes the husband is the father. In non-marital relationships, you must take certain steps to establish paternity of a child. If there is any doubt, the father should take action to guarantee his rights in court. This can often be handled quickly and easily while the child is still an infant. The longer you wait, however, the more complicated that matter may become.
Getting a DNA test of a child is not as simple as making a request. Paternity testing, if necessary, should be done as soon as possible after the birth so that an appropriate custodial arrangement, including decision-making authority and support for the child, can be put in place.
Support Through Stressful Situations
It is not always practical to establish paternity when your child is an infant. In some cases, men find out much later that there is a chance they are not their children’s fathers. In such cases, it can be emotionally draining and difficult to address paternity. Our lawyers treat every client with respect and care. We do everything in our power to help our clients address their legal problems quickly and correctly.
