Paternity cases generally encompass a range of issues, from declaration of paternity to responsibility of child support. Let Rolfe Family Law be your paternity lawyer Tucson team for all issues related to paternity.
A paternity action is generally a court action filed to determine whether or not a man is the father of a child, brought forth by the man, by the mother, or by a third party entity. In Arizona, best interest of the child must be taken into account when a court evaluates a paternity case. A father needs to establish paternity in order to successfully request a court order for decision making or parenting time. Paternity also must be established before either parent can ask for child support. Whether you are a father seeking representation to establish paternity or you are an mother trying to engage the father of your child in a legal action, let Rolfe Hinderaker draw on our Paternity law experience to help you be successful.
