Paternity

Legal Representation in Paternity Cases in North Shore Boston, Massachusetts

Paternity is often an issue where unmarried parents have a child in common. The establishment of paternity can lead to financial responsibilities as well as parental rights. An unmarried mother may wish to seek child support from the father to help pay for the child’s expenses. An unmarried father who believes a child is not his may wish to establish that fact to avoid the financial obligation of court-ordered child support. An unmarried father may also wish to establish his parenthood in order to ensure an ongoing relationship with a child through custody or visitation rights.
