Legitimation and Paternity Lawyer

Legitimation and paternity actions are legal proceedings by which unmarried parents of minor children may obtain court orders to establish child support, custody, and visitation rights to children.  These matters are often consensual and non-adversarial between parents and serve to provide financial and emotional stability to non-traditional families.   However, legitimation may also be used as a tool for an unwed biological father to challenge a mother’s adoption plan, and in such cases may be hotly and aggressively contested.
