Paternity Lawyers Serving Indianapolis & Carmel
From DNA Testing to Child Custody Hearings
Establishing paternity helps protect the future of your children. By officially
documenting the identity of your child's father, you can begin the
process of negotiating the terms to which the father will be held accountable.
For example, in the wake of a paternity test,
child custody and visitation regulations are determined, and the court evaluates whether the father
will be responsible for submitting child custody payments to help support
On the other side, as a potential father, you have the right to know if
you are the biological parent of a child. This allows you to secure a
bond with your child, and also gives you the option of requesting visitation
rights or custody. We can help accomplish these goals.
Benefits of establishing paternity include:
- Potential social security benefits for children
- Grounds for negotiating child support
- Opportunities for health care or insurance
- Child custody rights established
- Opens access to a family's health history for the child
- Grants child rights to inheritance or veteran's benefits
Whether you are the mother seeking help with supporting your child, or
the father wanting to establish visitation rights for your child, having
the counsel of an experienced
Indianapolis family law attorney can both protect your rights and help you achieve the best possible results.

How is paternity established?
If a child's paternity was not established at the time of birth, a
court can order the child, mother, and father to undergo genetic paternity
testing to officially determine paternity. In this case, the appointed
professionals collect samples from all involved parties and subject these
samples to paternity screening tests. The results are then presented before
a judge for official declaration of the child's paternity.
Establishing yourself as the father of your child opens you up to visitation
opportunities. Because your relationship with your potential child is
at stake, consulting with our family law office can help protect the future
of both you and the child.
