SAN DIEGO PATERNITY LAWYERS
Parental Rights and Paternity Disputes in Rancho Bernardo
In a paternity action, either parent can legally establish his or her rights and obligations regarding a child. Unmarried parents of a child may not have a clear understanding of their rights and obligations.
In California, the parents of a child have the absolute right to be a parent to their child. That means the right to spend time with the child and participate in his or her life. Both parents are required to provide economic support to the best of their abilities. Parental status must be established before orders can be made for child custody and child support.
At the Law Offices of Daniel Grunbaum, we work to protect our clients' parental rights and exceed their expectations of a law firm. To meet with one of our skilled La Mesa paternity attorneys, please call 619-469-9477 or contact us online.
San Diego Parental Rights Attorney
Mother's and father's rights attorney. A mother's legal status as a parent does not require a legal determination. By giving birth, a mother establishes herself as the child's legal parent. If the mother is married, the law assumes that her husband is the father.
When a child is born outside of marriage, the legal status of the father is uncertain until determined by a court. In some cases, DNA testing may be necessary to establish whether a man is the child's biological and, therefore, legal father. In other cases, a father may be forced to begin a paternity action to gain access to his child.
