Unmarried parents are required to financially support their children and are entitled to pursue custody rights so they can play a meaningful role in their children’s lives.
Establishing Paternity Is Essential for Child Support and Custody
There can be complications, though, when the identity of the father is not known. A mother cannot seek child support and a man cannot obtain child custody until it is proven that he is the child’s biological father. These can be highly emotional, complex cases. The assistance of an experienced Saint Paul paternity attorney can help ensure you and your children’s best interests are protected. Contact the law firm of Johnson Family Law, PLLC, to learn how we can help address your paternity concerns during an initial consultation in Saint Paul.
