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.
As 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
