Establishing paternity in the eyes of the law is a delicate family matter that requires sensitivity and competence in a legal professional. Our attorney at Tamera C. Trindade, CFLS* Attorney and Counselor at Law, is a compassionate lawyer experienced at using her skill to represent fathers and mothers with paternity concerns in Shasta County.
Paternity suits are legal actions that can be initiated by:
- Child support services
- The child’s mother
- A man claiming paternity
The initiator of the paternity suit uses both the case and the resulting paternity test to begin actions that are in the child’s interest such as:
- Pursuing custody and visitation of the child
- Substantiating responsibility of child support
- Confirming parental rights
Standing Up For Fathers’ Rights
Ms. Trindade realizes that whenever possible, fathers should be involved in the lives of their children. Establishing paternity in a legal framework is a way to participate in your child’s life through visitation and support arrangements. It is also necessary for mothers to obtain a paternity determination in order to receive child support payments from the child’s father.
