Clermont Parental Right Attorney Protecting Unmarried Parents
At BCN Law Firm our Family Law Attorney, Kevin Farris, has over 15 years experience in all phases of family law. He works with both fathers and mothers to attain an equitable solution for the welfare of the children.
When we consult with fathers one of the things they assume is that they have a legal paternity as their name is recorded on a birth certificate. This is not always the case as the records are inconclusive. Also, until a legal paternity is achieved the mother can not by law press for alimony, child support or any of the platforms she could have by a true paternity. You must seek the counsel of an experienced lawyer who will explain the process so you can proceed with the correct knowledge. Contact BCN Law Firm today to know all your options.
Just a note to unmarried dads. You can not assert any legal rights until you satisfy a paternity and then assert your rights as under the law. Call us today at 855-LAW-2020.
