Indiana Paternity Lawyers
When people who are not married to each other have a child together, things can become legally complicated. Each situation is different. A father may not be able to protect his rights. He may be forced to spend time with the child only when it’s convenient for the mother. A mother may not receive the child support that she needs to pay for childcare and household expenses.
A paternity action can change things. Paternity is the relationship between a father and his child, and establishing paternity is the process of making this a legal relationship. At the Law Offices of Moseley & Martinez, LLC, we file and respond to paternity actions in Indiana courts. Paternity actions establish a legally recognized father for the child and resolve issues of child custody and visitation, as well as child support.
Depending on the situation, the parties may agree to the paternity or request a DNA test and hearing. We take the right action for your situation. The lawyers at our firm can help you and the other parent come to a no-fuss agreement about paternity. We can also take an aggressive stance — protecting your rights and your finances in Indiana courts.
Attorney Answering Questions About Fathers’ Visitation
Many parents go for years without a formal, legal agreement. But doing so is risky. If things change, the parents may not be able to protect their rights properly without a court order in place. For example, mom might pick up and move away with the child, or dad might not get credit for all the money he spent on diapers and day care.
When it comes to paternity, having a legal agreement in place is best.
