Essex County Paternity Lawyers

Challenging Paternity

Because an increasing amount of children are born out of wedlock, both parents are seeking to establish paternity or to challenge paternity. Our team of tough, smart Essex County Paternity Lawyers have represented a number of clients seeking to establish paternity or challenge paternity.

Psychological Parent

Even if it is later determined that the man is not the father of the child, the man may still be held to be a psychological parent thus entitling him to all of the same rights as the natural father. Determining if you qualify as a psychological parent of a child is complex. However, our tough, skilled Essex County family law attorneys know how to put the case together to help you achieve the best result.

Paternity carries with it a several important rights and obligations. Child support, child custody, visitation, health insurance, and inheritance rights are only some of the issues that our clients are concerned with. Our Essex County Paternity lawyers can help you establish paternity a number of ways. However, a DNA test is the most common method used to help establish paternity. Both the mother and the father will be required to DNA testing. If the DNA test shows at least a 95% probability of parentage, the man is deemed to be the father. If you need help with a Essex County paternity case, call our team of tough, smart lawyers today.
