Parental Rights Attorneys

When a couple is married, the husband is presumed to be the child's father. However, when unmarried people have a child together, it is necessary to establish the child's paternity formally. Since a paternity determination is a basis for various parental rights and responsibilities, it can affect child custody, visitation, and child support. An action to determine the parent-child relationship may be brought by, among others, the birth mother, the prospective father, the child's representation, or a child support enforcement agency if the mother is receiving assistance.

Determining the Child’s Paternity

A determination of the child's paternity may also be helpful when the child's parents are married. Perhaps you are the father of a child you once thought of as your own, but you now have new information that you may not be the biological father of that child. If you, the father, have doubts about your child's paternity, we can assist you in seeking a paternity determination. Recent developments have occurred in Maryland's paternity laws which allow a father to challenge his paternity obligations, sometimes even after many years.
