Reliable Representation Through Paternity Matters
Establishing and documenting the biological father of a child may be an important step for everyone involved. As a mother, you may want to hold the father accountable for his obligation to pay child support and have other important goals driven by the welfare of your son or daughter.
At Burke & Domercq, APC, we know that as a man, you may want a definitive answer as to whether you fathered a child and to exercise your right to a parental relationship. We can help you protect your rights and defend your family.
Balanced, Results-Driven Paternity Representation
We maintain a balanced California family law practice. Our experienced Carlsbad paternity lawyers will advise you on your legal rights and options through every phase of your case, from DNA testing procedures to the resolution of issues such as:
- Obtaining a child support order that accurately reflects both parents’ financial situations and will help provide for the child’s needs
- Addressing issues of child custody and parenting time that arise when both parents want significant involvement in the child’s life – often by constructing a detailed parenting plan
We know that contested issues in a paternity matter are sometimes even more emotionally loaded and complex than those in a divorce. You can depend on us to hear you out on your unique concerns. We will provide practical, informed advice on whether a custody action is likely to succeed, for example, or the best action to take if you have concerns involving domestic violence or substance abuse.
Not every paternity case is adversarial. In some situations, couples who remain in a relationship simply recognize the importance of establishing paternity for their child’s best interests. Our attorneys can advise you as a couple on issues such as those as well.
