We understand that family legal matters are often emotional and complex. When the identity of a child’s father is in legal question, legal paternity needs to be established. As a New York Paternity attorney, we help families set rights regarding custody and support.
Our concerns focus on what is best for the children. Part of the wellbeing of a child is establishing a legal father. This can ensure the welfare of a child as well as provide legal benefits.
Legal Benefits of Establishing Paternity:
A biological father has a right to build and maintain a relationship with their kids through visitation rights.
Custody gives a father the right to collaborative decision-making, including medical, educational, and religious decisions.
The father can pursue partial, joint, or full custody of a child depending on the case.
A child may claim certain benefits after a father’s passing from insurance or inheritance.
This can help a mother who needs child support from the legal father.
