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.
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.
