Oklahoma Paternity Lawyer
Paternity actions can be initiated by either the mother or the father of the child. The father can start the process in order to obtain rights related to custody and access of their child, while the mother can use the process to establish a legal child support responsibility.
A man who is denying paternity may also need the support of a paternity attorney. You may have discovered new information that has caused you to question what before you considered to be fact, or may be named by the mother as the father when you know it to be untrue.
This can be particularly tricky, especially if you have already established a parental-style relationship with the child in question. Basically, once you have assumed parentage, it is not as easy to take it back, mainly because the child is the one with the most to lose in that situation. The courts are reluctant to leave a child fatherless simply because he now questions the faithfulness of his past spouse or partner.
We can help you calmly navigate this complex issue. Whether you have been acting as the father of the child, or have just now discovered the child’s existence, we can help you make smart decisions regarding the next steps in the paternity process.
