Wheaton Area Paternity Attorneys
DuPage County and Kane County Illinois Paternity Lawyers
Fathers and mothers both have the right to establish the relationship between a child and his or her biological father. Establishing paternity, or parentage, is essential to ensuring that proper child custody and child support orders are put in place to provide for the well-being of a child. With a simple cheek swab, paternity testing can be completed, and the establishment of legal parentage can help provide peace of mind for both parties.
At Andrew Cores Family Law Group, we recognize the seriousness of paternity cases. Emotions can run high in these matters. Becoming caught up in "he said/she said" arguments can result in losing focus of the main concern at hand: the best interests of the child involved. Our goal is to help our clients take the proper steps to provide for their children's needs while protecting their parental rights.
Representing Both Men and Women
Our paternity attorneys are available to represent mothers in bringing legal actions to determine parentage and handle subsequent child custody and child support matters. We also work with men to either disprove paternity or to assert their rights as fathers.
Contact us to arrange a consultation to discuss legal options surrounding paternity. We work with clients throughout Illinois, including DuPage County, Kane County, Will County, and Kendall County.
Supporting Mothers Throughout the Process
We can help mothers seek paternity testing, including assisting with court-ordered DNA tests. If a man has been legally determined to be the father of your child, our attorneys can help establish child support obligations to ensure that the child's ongoing needs will be met. We can help determine how child custody or visitation rights for a child's father will be addressed, and we will work to put solutions in place that will allow the child to maintain positive relationships with both parents.
Protecting the Rights of Fathers
If you believe you are the biological father of a child, legitimization is the first step to protecting your right to be a part of your child's life. In addition to taking steps to establish paternity, We can help you put a parenting agreement in place that will allow you to share custody and maintain ongoing contact with your child.
If you do not believe you are a child's biological father but find yourself subject to a paternity action, our lawyers can help you protect your rights. We can represent you in court and help you obtain court-ordered DNA testing to confirm or deny that you are the child's father.
