Mothers Seeking Child Support or Fighting Visitation

In most cases, it is not necessary to hire a lawyer to establish child support. Child Support Services (CSS) can order support, compel DNA tests, and pursue action against a father who refuses to pay.

If you are concerned that the father would be an abusive or negative influence in your child's life, our family law attorneys can represent you in family court custody proceedings to argue against visitation, or in the alternative, for supervised visits only.

Fathers Establishing Paternity and Challenging Paternity Actions

Our lawyers can help men establish paternity of a child and assert their rights and responsibilities as a father. Our representation includes:

  • Arranging DNA paternity testing to prove you are the biological father
  • Petitioning for an Order to Show Cause hearing in family court to request shared custody or visitation rights
  • Negotiating the amount of child support

We also represent fathers who have been served with a child support order from CSS. If you dispute whether you are the father, we can arrange a genetic test (or a second test). If testing comes back positive, we can negotiate with CSS on your behalf to decrease any child support arrears. Our paternity lawyers have successfully reduced obligations by many thousands of dollars for clients. Your case is kept in strictest confidence.
