Paternity

Many people believe that paternity claims — known as parentage actions in California — only or primarily concern a father's rights and obligations to a child. In reality, these proceedings are essential to ensure that both mothers and fathers enjoy protected rights with respect to their children — and to make sure that a child's well-being is never jeopardized.

Although parentage actions can result in bitter disagreement, my firm aims to resolve these matters in the hope of maintaining amicable relationships between the parents — both for themselves and their children. I want to do what is best for children in these situations, but I also work diligently to help preserve our clients' essential parental rights as well as the needs of the evolving extended family.

My firm is here to inform you of your rights and responsibilities regarding your children, and to help you assert those rights. Call 818-528-4936 or 661-591-4132 for a confidential consultation with a lawyer.

A parentage action is required when unmarried parents wish to establish each other's rights to custody and visitation of a child, as well as the resulting obligations to pay support. A judicial determination of parentage is required to establish a right to custody, visitation and support.

I am an effective advocate for both mothers' rights and fathers' rights, and have had equal success representing both sides in these delicate matters. I believe it is important to preserve positive relationships between the parents whenever possible, but I also take seriously my role as advocate on behalf of my clients and their children.
