Temecula Paternity Lawyer

Resolving Paternity Disputes in California

Issues of paternity typically arise when a baby is born without the benefit of marriage. In those situations, parents are usually concerned with three things: Who is the father; how much time will each parent spend parenting; and how are we going to financially support the child?

If you are trying to resolve issues related to paternity, an experienced Temecula paternity attorney can help you determine who the father is and arrange visitation, custody and support matters. At The Law Offices of John G. McGill, Jr., we have more than 30 years of experience representing individuals in family law matters.

Establishing Paternity

Paternity petitions can be filed by either parent who is interested in protecting his or her parental responsibilities. Typically, when mothers file, they are looking to receive support from the father, both financially and through parenting time. When fathers file, it is often because they want to spend more time with their children.

Once paternity is established, our lawyer works with parents to arrange a parenting plan. Parenting plans usually include arrangements regarding child support, custody and visitation. Because the needs of children change as the children get older, we also work with parents in modifications.

Establishing paternity is not only in the best interest of the parents but also in the best interest of the children.
