Tenacious Monmouth County Paternity Attorneys
With the amount of children that are born out of wedlock increasing, both parents usually seek to establish paternity or challenge paternity. The reason why parents may challenge or establish paternity is because paternity carries with it several important rights and obligations. Issues such as health insurance, child support, visitation, child custody and inheritance rights are only some of what our clients are concerned with.
At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., our Monmouth County paternity lawyers have represented a number of clients seeking to challenge paternity or establish paternity a number of ways. In order to establish paternity, the most common method is through a DNA test. When a DNA test is used, both the mother and the father will be required to participate in the testing. Then when the results come in, if the test shows at least a 95% probability of parentage, the man is deemed to be the father or the woman is deemed to be the mother. And even if you’re not deemed the father or mother through a DNA test, you can still be entitled to be a psychological parent. A psychological parent will have the same rights as a natural parent. However, determining if you qualify as a psychological parent can be complex, but our Monmouth County family law attorneys know how to put the case together to help you achieve the best result.
