Paternity and Athens GA Child Support Lawyer

A paternity action is a legal proceeding to legally establish the parentage of a child. Sometimes paternity is agreed to and sometimes it is disputed.  A DNA test can be used to establish or disestablish paternity.  Only after paternity has been established can the father of a child born outside of a marriage have his rights determined by a Court. Once parentage is established in a paternity action the Court can set time-sharing (custody/visitation) and parental responsibility (decision making). Sometimes paternity is established for the purposes of child support outside of a paternity action.  When this happens and a father wants to establish a time-sharing schedule with the child and involvement in decision making the father needs to pursue a paternity action separate from the child support proceedings to do so.
