Fremont Paternity Attorney

Paternity issues come into play when the identity of a child’s father is not legally established. When parents are married, the father is presumed to be the father of a child. However, when parents are unmarried, there is no legal presumption that a certain individual is a child’s father unless a voluntary declaration of paternity is signed.I am attorney Earl L. Jiang, and I assist clients throughout the Bay Area in paternity matters. If you are a mother seeking to establish paternity to enforce child support payments, or if you are a male looking to take a paternity test to prove parentage, speak to a paternity lawyer about your legal options.Contact my law office online today to schedule an initial consultation.

Establishing Paternity in California

At my law office in Fremont, I can explain your legal options in regard to paternity matters:

  • Unmarried mothers — A paternity test may be necessary to legally establish the identity of the father. Once the identity of the father is confirmed, child support payments can be sought.
  • Alleged fathers — If you are not married to the mother of your alleged child and you did not sign a voluntary declaration of paternity, you may need to take a paternity test to prove parentage. Once done, your parental rights are the same as those of a father who is married to the child’s mother.

The importance of the role of a father cannot be stressed enough. Once the identity of a father is legally established, there are no legal restraints preventing a fulfilling and nurturing relationship between father and child.
