Child Support

Child support is a court-ordered payment one parent has to make to the other parent as a means of financial support when raising their child(ren). These parents are usually referred to as the custodial, or residential, parent and the noncustodial parent. Having child support can help with a number of expenses, including your child’s healthcare, primary education, child care and much more. Learn more about our child support attorney here.

Often done through DNA testing, paternity is the declaration of naming a legal father to a child. Declaring paternity can help many parents who are trying to fight for custody or visitation rights, are seeking child support and much more.

While it can be a complicated and lengthy process, paternity issues are often time sensitive. If you do not act in time, you could be barred at a later date from seeking a paternity determination — which could result in losing the rights to your child. Learn more about our paternity attorney here.
