Paternity Lawyers in Methuen, MA
At DiBella Law Offices, P.C., we represent both men and women in legal paternity actions. We frequently handle two common scenarios — mothers seeking child support from the fathers of their children and fathers trying to obtain visitation rights.
If the paternity of a child has not yet been determined, the child’s mother cannot obtain support and the father does not have visitation rights. Once paternity is established a mother can obtain support and a father has visitation rights. Whatever situation you are in, a Methuen paternity lawyer from our firm can assist you in sorting through the implications of a paternity determination.
If you are a mother or a presumed father, we are happy to speak with you about your rights and options. We can also talk to you about genetic testing, particularly DNA testing.
If you are searching for a skilled attorney who can answer your questions and guide you toward a favorable outcome, contact a DNA testing attorney from our firm to schedule a free initial consultation in Boston, Methuen, or Burlington.
Establishing paternity is often necessary for the following reasons:
- To enforce child support payments
- To get out of child support payments
- To establish custody or visitation rights
If you are a mother and would like the father to contribute financially to the child’s upbringing through child support, you can work with a lawyer to establish paternity of the child.
Our Methuen family law attorneys can assist you in bringing an action to establish paternity. Or if you are you the father of a child and would like to have access to visitation, we can assist you in bringing a paternity action.
