NYC Paternity Lawyer

Determining Paternity in a New York Case

Paternity can be an issue in relationships that can affect a child's and family's future. In order to legally establish a father's responsibility towards his child, a paternity test can be conducted if the legitimacy of the paternity is uncertain.

Whether it must be determined at birth or during a separation or divorce process, the court needs to establish paternity to work out legal obligations of a father towards his child, as well as a father's rights with regards to visitation, custody and the right to have an ongoing influence on his child's life. If you need to address a legal issue involving paternity, our firm can help.

Understanding How Paternity Works

Generally, paternity is questioned at conception or when the child is born. There may, however, be a need to determine paternity at a later time in a child's life. There may be some instances where an individual was told he was the father, but in fact was not. Once a paternity test reveals a parent is not, in fact, a legal father, the alleged father could be legally released from any obligations towards the child.

Paternity can be established through DNA testing. It could be a critical issue as it can influence the following:

  • Affect child custody or a parenting plan
  • Affect child support
  • Affect visitation schedule
  • Obtain parental health history for the child
  • Release a person from obligation who is not the actual parent
