Parentage Matters

Legal Representation for Maternity, Paternity, and Parentage Matters

Whether you are the mother or the father, DeGrazia Law offer experienced representation for your parentage or paternity case. Paternity can be sought by a biological mother, the child, or an assumed father. By filing a petition, the assumed father is subject to DNA testing to determine paternity. Establishing parentage can have a great effect on issues regarding child custody and child support. A father’s options for custody and visitation can change drastically once legal paternity is determined, as can a mother’s rights for financial support.

Legal parentage matters also greatly affect the child. Legally established paternity not only provides opportunities for a healthy relationship, but also for monetary benefits like rights of inheritance, insurance, and Social Security. Attorney Joel DeGrazia knows the importance of a favorable result when establishing and contesting parentage, and he will fight for the truth – and your rights – in all parentage matters
