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 help provide peace of mind for both parties.
At Andrew Cores Family Law Group, we recognize the seriousness of paternity cases. Emotions 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.
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. They 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 from our offices, including DuPage County, Kane County, Cook County, Will County, Kendall County and the Loop.
Supporting Mothers Throughout the Process
We can help mothers seek paternity testing, including assisting with court-ordered DNA testing. If a man has been legally determined the father of your child, our attorneys can help you set up child support and negotiate on your behalf if the father seeks child custody or visitation rights.
Protecting the Rights of Fathers
If you believe yourself to be the biological father of a child, legitimization is the first step to protecting your right to be a part of your child's life. We can help you establish a parenting agreement that serves your interests and those of 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 a child's father.
