  • Paternity and Father's Rights:

    In California, paternity is crucial for unmarried fathers to establish their legal rights. If you were never married to your child's mother, establishing paternity is the first step to legally being recognized as your child's father. This process gives you rights to custody, visitation, and a say in the critical decision-making that directly impacts your child's life.
  • Automatic Legal Rights:
    If the parents were married at the child's birth, the law assumes the husband is the presumed father. But there's no legal father for children born out of wedlock until paternity is established.
  • Establishing Paternity:
    If you know you're the biological father but aren't on the birth certificate, you'll need to either sign a voluntary Declaration of Paternity or possibly go through a DNA test ordered by the court. This step is essential for you to assert your rights as a father.
  • Benefits of Paternity:
    Establishing paternity lets you be legally involved in your child's life. It's the key to gaining custody, visitation rights, and having a say in important decisions that will impact your child's future.
  • Legal Support for Fathers:
    At Progresso Legal Group, P.C. fathers sometimes face biases in family law cases. We're here to balance the scales, offering strong legal support in cases of divorce, custody, paternity, child support, and spousal support.
