Paternity

Paternity Attorney in Wellesley

Representing Mothers & Fathers in Paternity Actions

Are you a single mother interested in pursuing a paternity case to get child support payments from the child's father? Perhaps you are the father of a child and you want to file a paternity case so that you can get visitation rights and play an active role in your child's upbringing. Tomasino Legal Group's Wellesley paternity lawyers can explain the process and assist with establishing paternity.

Once paternity is legally established, we can help clients create arrangements for child custody and child support orders. We work closely with you to calculate a fair support amount and outline custody and visitation schedules that promote the welfare of your child.

Parental Rights & Obligations Go Hand in Hand

When enlisting a family law attorney to assist you with a paternity case, it is important to understand that you cannot have the rights of a parent without also having the obligations of a parent. In other words, if you seek to have a person adjudicated as the father, he will have the right to parenting time with the child and must pay child support. Alisha Tomasino and her team in Wellesley will help you understand your rights and obligations. Our law firm supports both unmarried fathers' rights and mothers' rights equally.

Establishing Paternity

Paternity can be established several ways:

  • Voluntarily: The father can voluntarily acknowledge that he is the father of the child.
  • Court order: If the father disputes paternity, DNA testing may be required by the court. We may recommend testing to ensure absolute certainty.

The family lawyers and staff at Tomasino Legal Group handle each matter discreetly and professionally according to the highest standards of confidentiality.
