San Diego Paternity Tests Attorneys

Under the law, the paternity of a child has substantial consequences for the legal relationship between a child and his or her father. Proof of paternity can both impose substantial responsibilities on a father as well as providing a wide range of rights under the law. For this reason, paternity tests can play a crucial role in the lives of both children and parents.

An experienced legal professional is often necessary to helping resolve matters of paternity and ensure that the rights and responsibilities of parents are fully upheld.
