Las Vegas Paternity Lawyer

Paternity is defined as the state of being a father. In legal terms, paternity is a legal acknowledgment of a man's parental relationship with a child. When paternity is established, a man may have the responsibility to pay child support and the right to seek child custody or visitation. If you are dealing with a case involving paternity and are interested in seeking legal counsel to ensure your case is properly handled, contact a Las Vegas divorce attorney at Gordon Law Offices. We are committed to providing our clients with personal attention and knowledgeable legal representation through the life of their cases.

How is paternity proven or established?

Paternity may be established in different ways. When both parties involved (mother and father) agree that the man is the father of the child, paternity may be established without a DNA test necessary. In a case where paternity is in question or is contested, however, the court will likely order a DNA test to establish whether the man is the father of the child.
