California Paternity Lawyer

Paternity Law Firm

Barb McNamara is an experienced paternity attorney serving Orange County

California state info regarding paternity

Bringing a child into this world biologically takes two people – a mother and a father. However, in many cases, paternity isn’t clear and must be established in order for the father to be held legally responsible for his child, and also for him to begin developing an emotional relationship with the child.

Both mothers and fathers seek paternity testing for a variety of reasons, including establishing paternity for child support matters.

Orange County paternity attorneyAs a certified family law specialist, I have worked on both sides of paternity cases.

  • I have worked with mothers who wish to establish the father of her child so she may pursue financial support in order to care for the child
  • I’ve worked with fathers who wish to prove paternity in order to ensure that they can legally develop an emotional relationship with the child and that all obligations to the child are met.

If you are a mother of a child and wish to establish paternity and obtain child support orders, I can help you. Or, if you are an “alleged father,” unsure of your legal standing, I can help you determine what steps to take next.

I can help you:

  • obtain legally recognized paternity testing
  • obtain custody orders
  • determine the proper amount of child support

If you need to establish paternity with the help of a caring and compassionate attorney who will support you and advocate for you, call me today for a consultation at (714) 740-2542.

My name is Cheryl Stack and I work for Chapman University in Orange, California. I have been employed with Chapman for twenty three years.

I was the victim of a harassment/stalking situation for over one year and was seeking legal assistance to get the female perpetrator to stop. At the time of my first meeting with Barbara, I had filed two police reports with the City of Orange Police department. I had also met with another attorney prior to meeting Barbara. After our first initial......
Barbara McNamara was recommended to me by a co-worker who had seen her in action while waiting for his case to be heard. My friend did not have representation at the time and was fine with that–until he saw Barbara. He said she was a TIGER in the courtroom! I took his advice and retained Barbara as my attorney. Barbara had her game face on when I met her and it was awesome! She had an intensity when listening to me talk, I knew she was totally engaged with what I had to say. Barbara laid it on the line and gave her candid opinion, which I appreciated and still appreciate. We.....
I would recommend Ms. McNamara because I believe she’s an attorney who is there for the child’s best interest. Plus, when it came to returning phone calls they were in 24 hours or less and great at replying to emails. Thank you for your help and patience throughout my trial. Thank you, Barbara! –A. Esparza
