Paternity Attorney in Roswell & Alpharetta
Determining the true biological father of a child has long-lasting implications on the life of both the parents and the child.
Support payments, visitation, custody, and other factors all can hinge on the results of a paternity test.
If you are going to court for a paternity hearing and need legal representation, contact the offices of Elyssa Williams today.
There are usually two different reasons why a paternity suit may be brought in any given case. Below is a summary of those two situations.
Male Denying Paternity
If a man is being accused of being the father of a child and he does not believe that to be the case, he can go to court to fight having to pay child support.
The court can order a paternity test to prove the identity of the biological father and potentially absolve the man of having to make those payments.
Woman Alleging Paternity
Likewise, a female may bring a paternity suit against a man who is refusing to pay child support. He can be compelled by the court to take a paternity test and will be required to make child support payments if found to be the real father.
No matter which side of a paternity suit you are on, having experienced representation is very important.
Much of your financial and personal future is on the line during a paternity suit, so having someone by your side that has been there before will be of great comfort.
