Paternity and Legitimation

Establishing paternity of a child is the first step for a mother in obtaining child support for her child born outside of marriage.  For a father of a child born out of wedlock, legitimating the child is the first step in establishing custody and parenting time for him with the child.  David represents both mothers and fathers who are parents of children born out of wedlock and who wish to establish custody, child support and parenting time.  David’s vast experience in addressing these issues in divorce cases transfers easily to paternity and legitimation cases, where he continues to strive to obtain the best possible results for his clients.

David has built his career on helping his clients obtain favorable results in order to begin the next chapter of their lives.
