Seeking paternity in MN can really get the ball rolling

If you or a loved one has been thinking about seeking paternity rights, think no more. Action will bring your desires of a better relationship with your child into reality. Minnesota families, especially children, can really benefit from the love and influence of both parents in their life. Proving paternity can be the largest step to achieving any level of the child custody process.

When it is a question of paternity rights, it is often the father who is seeking validation of their parenting rights. A paternity action is designed to establish a legal determination of fatherhood in situations where the purported parents of a child have never been married.

If paternity is contested, a DNA test may be the quickest and most determinant way of clearing up that debacle. Once it is proven that a father is in fact the biological father of a child, it can open up a lot of option for seeking child custody and visitation.

Once a DNA test has been determined to prove paternity, there are many paternal rights a father may want to seek after such a result. Some parents are seeking visitation rights while others are looking for sole custody of their child. Whatever the wish for child custody arrangement, at Terzich & Ort, LLP, our attorneys are dedicated to meet the parenting needs of our clients.

Jumping the hurdle of paternity can seem like a daunting task for some Minnesota fathers. Unmarried parents are commonplace in today's society and sometimes need guidance in order to create a healthy family dynamic. To learn more, check out our law firm's paternity website. This could provide general information, helping biological fathers take necessary steps to gain their parental rights.
