Paternity is an important topic that affects many men, women and children in the Philadelphia area. An accurate paternity test can establish parental responsibilities or relieve an individual of responsibilities that are not his. No matter which side of a paternity issue you fall on, the Philadelphia paternity attorneys of Testa & Pagnanelli, LLC, can help.
Paternity Tests for Men
There are several reasons why a man should seek a paternity test. Common scenarios include:
- You believe a child is yours, but the mother claims you are not the father.
- You were told a child is yours, but you are not sure the claim is true.
- The child's mother is seeking financial support for the child, and you want to be certain of your parental rights and obligations.
If any of these situations apply to you, we can help you seek a swift genetic test to confirm whether you are the child's parent. If the test is positive, we can help you through the next steps of the process, which may include working out child custody and child support agreements.
Helping Women Seek Paternity
Although many people think of paternity as an issue that mostly affects men, the fact of the matter is that paternity can have a major impact on mothers as well. Establishing paternity is the first step toward ensuring that your child has the financial support he or she needs and deserves.
We understand the difficult position you are in, and we are here to help you through it. We can file a motion for genetic testing to legally confirm who the father of your child is. If the result is positive, we can help you seek child support and work through related visitation matters.
