A paternity action is an action brought to establish who is the father of a child. Either the mother or the father can initiate the proceedings. If paternity is not admitted, the Court will order that blood testing be done. If the testing establishes parenthood, the Court will then address the issues of past, present and future child support, past, present and future medical costs, health insurance and legal decision making and parenting time (effective January 1, 2013, these are the new names for custody and visitation). Very serious rights and obligations are involved in these cases. They can become quite emotional. An experienced attorney will serve you well in such a case.

I am now in my 37th year as an attorney and would be happy to help you.
