Paternity

Warren Paternity Lawyer

In the state of Ohio, when an unmarried man and woman have a child, the mother is automatically deemed to be the residential parent. However, the assumed father is considered the "alleged" father. This differs when the couple is married, as the husband is presumed to be the father of the child. When paternity is called into question, seeking legal advice is the first step to protecting your rights and interests.

At the law offices of Charles A. Ziegler, we have experience helping mothers and fathers use paternity to establish the basis for a variety of parental legal rights and responsibilities, including:

Whether you are a father looking to establish your parental rights, or a mother seeking the child support you need for your child, we can help you resolve your legal issues professionally and with an eye towards helping you achieve your legal goals while maintaining family relationships and stability.

Youngstown, Ohio, Spousal Support Attorney Helping People With Paternity Issues

If you are an alleged father and desire to be involved in your child's life, you owe it to yourself and your child to establish paternity if that comes into question during a divorce, dissolution of marriage action, spousal support dispute or other situation where you believe you may be denied access to your child.

Once the court has established that you are the biological father, you will be able to secure parenting time and be expected to pay child support. Paternity can be established by mutual agreement or by court order.

Warren paternity attorney, Charles A. Ziegler, has a long history of helping mothers and potential fathers establish parental relationships through paternity testing and using Ohio law to protect and assert their legal rights.
