For mothers seeking to establish child support or for fathers who wish to establish child custody or visitation and be a part of their child's life, the first step is establishing paternity. Unlike married couples, who are given the benefit of the doubt, unmarried men and women must prove paternity before these legal rights can be granted.
At Aaron & Aaron, we offer thorough representation to men and women in South Carolina.S. Paul Aaron, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience, will answer your questions and make sure you don't get pushed around.
Who Can Make A Request To Establish Paternity?
Although many paternity cases take on the form of a mother seeking to establish a father's paternity, mothers are not the only ones who can request a paternity test. Those who can seek a court's help in establishing a child's true paternity include:
The child's biological/birth mother
Someone claiming to be the child's father
Anyone in whose care a child has been placed
Certain government agencies
In addition to helping these individuals establish or contest paternity actions in court, we are also equipped to help parents with voluntary paternity agreements. We can help draft voluntary paternity agreements that protect your interests and ensure that your children receive the support they need to grow and thrive.
