If a child is born to unmarried parents, it is important to establish paternity and the rights and responsibilities that go along with that. Sometimes fathers sign an acknowledgement of paternity. In these cases, there is a presumption that he is the child’s father. In some cases, genetic testing may be required to determine paternity.
Once paternity has been established the Court can determine things such as child support, child custody and visitation, and health care. It is important for you to have legal representation to ensure your rights are protected. Contact Stephanie Flynn Law, or call (402) 325-8469 if you need help with a paternity action.
