Paternity

Face paternity cases with confidence knowing you have experienced representation that will stand by your side.

Paternity cases encompass a range of issues, from declaration of paternity to parenting time to child support.

A paternity action is generally a court action filed to determine whether or not a man is the father of a child. The case can be initiated by the man, by the mother, or by a third party. 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 to establish paternity and obtain parenting time orders, or you are an mother trying to engage the father of your child in a legal action, Hinderaker Family Law has the knowledge and experience to help you be successful.
