Paternity

Determining the identity of a child’s father can be a challenging, stressful and emotionally charged process for all the parties involved.

At Graham & Rosen, our family law team specialises in helping people to launch and defend paternity suits. Whether you are the mother or the potential father, we can help you to gather all the evidence needed to determine paternity, including DNA testing from a trustworthy source that will stand up in court.

Working closely with you and supporting you from start to finish, we will provide you with honest, tailored legal advice on the process and guide you through the future implications of establishing paternity, including:

  • Parental rights and responsibilities
  • Maintenance obligations
  • Residence and contact (‘Custody and Access’)
  • Consent to medical treatment
  • Taking a child on holiday

In cases where a party is trying to block DNA evidence, we can also help you to obtain a court order to ensure that the test goes ahead. Once paternity has been established, our friendly team of family law experts can also provide you with legal support on a full range of Children Matters.
