Paternity

Attorney Watson Handles All Types of Paternity Cases in Massachusetts

When action needs to be taken to determine who the biological father of a child is, it is considered to be a paternity action.  Paternity refers to the biological relationship between a child and a father, and unlike maternity which is established at birth, it is not always easy to tell who the real father of a child is.  In some situations, the paternity of a father can be challenged, and in these cases legal action may become necessary.  Paternity can affect such things as child custody, child support, and visitation rights, so it is important to have representation from an experienced paternity lawyer to help resolve the matter.

Most often in Massachusetts, paternity is called into question for financial or custodial reasons.  If you are not the biological father of a child, you may not be entitled to continue paying child support, and your custody and visitation arrangements may need to be amended.  In order to determine paternity, the courts will sometimes order a paternity test to legally establish a biological relationship, or in some cases to reveal the lack thereof.  Once the test results are identified, your lawyer will take whatever actions are necessary next to resolve the situation.
