Bronx Paternity Lawyer
Protecting Fathers' Rights in the Bronx

mother, there may be times when legal assistance is needed to help establish
At The Law Office of Ava G. Gutfriend, I have experience in handling paternity
cases and ensuring that the rights of each party involved are protected.
With the guidance of a Bronx paternity lawyer, you can effectively and
legally establish paternity.
Establishing Paternity in New York
As a father, you have the right to obtain access to your child; however,
in some cases, paternity may not be established on a child's birth
certificate, so you will need to take a DNA test to match your genetics
with that of the child. This is especially true for unmarried couples,
as the state does not automatically assume you to be the parent of the child.
If the mother of the child does not want you to take a paternity test or
you are having a difficult time determining paternity, then a court order
can help enforce compliance. Once paternity is officially established,
you can begin having
visitation interactions with your child - it is important to remember, though, that
you may also be forced to pay
child support to the child's mother or legal guardian.
