Parentage Lawyers Serving Los Angeles

Establishing Parentage For Unmarried Parents

Parentage is an important issue for both mothers and fathers in California. These issues are generally tied to other matters involving children, including child support and child custody. If paternity is disputed, a simple DNA test is the usual means of establishing paternity. The test can be court-ordered or voluntary.

Parents seeking to establish paternity or father's rights should secure the assistance of an attorney who can prepare all of the necessary paperwork, request any court-ordered tests needed to identify the father of a child and provide representation inside the courtroom. At TRABOLSI | LEVY | GABBARD LLP, we represent men and women in paternity matters, advising them about their rights and responsibilities.

Parentage Law in California

Once parentage is established, issues regarding child custody, parenting time, and child support must be resolved. When deciding custody issues in the state of California, family court judges strive to determine what is in "the best interests of the child." However, what constitutes the child's best interests is not always clear; it takes an experienced lawyer to present the situation in an effective and meaningful way.

We have experience with the following issues concerning parentage in California:

  • Establishing parentage
  • Defending against parentage claims
  • The validity of genetic testing
  • Voluntary acknowledgments of parentage

For fathers who are seeking to establish legal rights, a paternity determination is necessary to be granted custody rights or to have more input into decisions concerning their children's lives. For mothers who are seeking child support from fathers, a paternity action can legally determine the father of the child and provide a basis for establishing child support obligations.
