Paternity Actions

A father wants visitation of a child he believes is biologically his. A new mother, struggling to make ends meet, needs to identify the father of her newborn for not only financial support, but also medical issues that may arise.

The most common parties involved in paternity actions are mothers, fathers and the children in question. In some cases, the state becomes involved and orders paternity testing. Regardless of who is involved, paternity actions are complex and emotionally charged. At Almeida & Gordy, P.A., we get to the facts and protect the rights of our clients.

Time is of the essence for fathers to act. On their behalf, we file written responses that either agree with the testing or contest the results.
