Paternity

Paternity disputes arise among unmarried persons that have one or more children together. We specialize in the following areas of paternity: 

  • Child Custody: This includes legal custody, decision making authority for the child; and physical custody, where the child spends his or her time.
  • Child Support: This is calculated based on a percentage of the physical custody and the respective incomes of the parents.
  • Attorney Fees: Where there’s a disparity of income, courts take into account one party’s need vs the other party’s ability to pay.
