Paternity issues can arise when parents were never together or when they lived together but were not married. In order to have legal rights regarding your child, such as custody and visitation, you must establish paternity through the court system. Or, if you are seeking support from your child’s noncustodial, biological parent, you also need paternity to be established. A skilled lawyer can help make this process go more smoothly.

We also help mothers with paternity enforcement and to defend their right to receive child support. We will meet with you to understand and provide an honest assessment of your situation.

Just because your name is listed on your child’s birth certificate it does entitle you to parental rights, such as visitation, custody or a role in decision making. It is in your best interests to establish paternity. Paternity can be established by both parents by going to court. Once parental rights are granted, it is very difficult, and often costly, to change them.
As founder of this firm, paternity attorney Jill Setzer and John Setzer help mothers or fathers to establish paternity and address custody, visitation and support matters. She and John will make every effort to settle your case amicably, but they are also fully prepared to represent you in court, if necessary.
