Complicated & Emotional Issues
We know that paternity can be complicated, and paternity law usually applies to mothers who are not married to the father of the child or children. While you are not required to be married in order to have kids, legal matters, even something as simple as enrolling your children in school, can require action on behalf of the father.
Maybe you are a father and you want to be in your child’s life. Establishing paternity can also help strengthen your right to visitation and custody, even though you may not be married to the child’s mother.
Our Salt Lake City family law attorneys can help you with every aspect of paternity law, including:
- Accessing health insurance.
- Ensuring a child’s inheritance.
- Obtaining child support.
- Establishing custody.
- Registering for social security benefits.
- Getting your children citizenship.
Many people do not realize that paternity can affect many huge areas of a child’s life. Even worse, if you don’t establish who has custody of your children now, it is possible that the father can sue for custody later in life, causing a tangled and emotional legal situation.
