Paternity Lawyers in Temple Terrace
At the Temple Terrace Law Group we assist clients who are attempting to establish or de-establish paternity rights. The term “paternity” refers to who is legally considered a child’s father and ultimately responsible for a child’s care. Paternity gives rights and benefits to all family members involved such as allowing fathers to exercise the right to parent, obtaining or modifying child support, allowing another person to adopt a child, etc. If a child is born to married parents, the court presumes the husband is the child’s father. If this assumption is not accurate or the parents are not married, paternity must be established for the child and DNA testing may be necessary. Contact us so we can help you legitimize your claim to parental rights or dispute them.
