In the past, when issues of paternity and DNA testing were discussed, they were mostly discussed in the context of the mother identifying the father as the person responsible for child support. While this fact pattern still arises, this area of family law has become more complicated recently as a result of fathers’ rights. In these fathers’ rights situations, paternity and DNA are used to establish fatherhood so the father can enjoy his parenting rights with respect to his children, especially where visitation rights are at issue. While not all courts require DNA testing to establish paternity, close to 75 percent of Alabama courts do require DNA testing.
As your lawyer, I work with you to ensure that your rights as a parent and a father are taken seriously and respected. It is my job to provide you with professional guidance through what can often be a complicated and emotional process. In the midst of this highly charged situation, I draw on my extensive experience in handling child support cases. I will calmly counsel you as to your best available options so you can make an effective and informed decision as to what course of action to take.
Calm and objective advice is needed by most if not all of my clients when the issues at stake include paternity, visitation rights, and DNA testing. As child support law continues to develop, fathers’ rights in these situations are being taken more and more seriously. With your side of the story being told to the court by a professional, you stand that much more of a chance of enjoying the time with your children for which you hope.
