Springfield Paternity Lawyers

Establishing paternity is a court case involving unmarried partners with children who are ending their relationship. This process is very important, because children whose fathers are not listed on the birth certificate will almost certainly be at a disadvantage for reasons, such as:

  • Inability to access family medical history so any inherent health problems can be proactively addressed
  • Legal adoption will not be possible
  • Health insurance and child support responsibilities cannot be assigned
  • Your child will not be entitled to any inheritance or benefits after the father dies, such as Social Security or Veteran's assistance programs
  • The government requires knowledge of paternity to qualify for public assistance programs

Child custody/visitation and other key legal issues are linked to the matter of paternity, so an experienced lawyer is essential for guidance through this process.
