At Tentinger Law Firm, we represent fathers asserting their paternity rights and mothers seeking to establish paternity of their children. We can also help individuals who dispute paternity.It is extremely important to remember that unmarried fathers do not have any custodial rights unless they seek establishment of the rights through a paternity action. This means that without a paternity suit, unmarried fathers have no right to see their children or participate in major decisions involving their lives.
Paternity cases regarding custody, parenting time/visitation and child support generally involve a blood test (if paternity is disputed). Unmarried mothers should remember that without a paternity suit, they have no right to child support from the father. When county assistance is involved, the county will establish paternity and child support. However, such actions do not typically establish custody, so it is important that the unmarried father affirmatively seeks custody.
