Legitimation and Paternity are very sensitive and important issues to a family. We understand this and are willing to assist you through the legal process.
Legitimation is legalizing the status of a child born out of wedlock through court order. The legitimized child becomes the lawful offspring of the alleged father and is now able to receive an inheritance from the father. Through a legitimation and custody action, a father can legitimize his children and gain custody rights and a parenting time schedule. As a father, you owe it to yourself and your children to have experienced representation as you seek custody and a parenting time schedule that is in your children’s best interest.
Whether or not a father has custody rights or has even legitimated his children, he still must provide financial support for the children. A mother can file a paternity action seeking child support from the father. Should the issue of paternity be in question, the court can order the parties to submit to DNA testing to confirm paternity. Your children deserve to be financially supported from both parents and the Stewart Law Office can assist and guide you through this process.
