We Will Work With You | Paternity Proceedings

At the Law Offices of Jacqueline R. McNutt, we have represented clients on both sides of paternity proceedings. We offer a team approach and understand the difficult emotional aspects of this family law issue. Our experienced lawyers know how to gather the appropriate information. We will thoroughly explain the process and options so that you can make an informed decision on moving forward.

Establishing paternity is often the first step in a child support matter or custody and parenting time proceeding. Paternity may be established by presumption, by a signed acknowledgment or by a genetic paternity test and subsequent court order. Once paternity is established, the next steps include child support and/or a custody and parenting time proceeding.

Establishing Paternity Is Only The First Step

Our attorneys will help establish paternity but they will also help clients develop a long-term strategy to address custody and child support issues. We know that you want to know your children will be okay whatever the outcome of the custody and parenting time agreement. We also understand that whether you are going to be paying child support or receiving it — you want to know that you will be able to afford your necessary expenses.
