Have you been told you are the father of a child? Have you signed a Recognition of Parentage (ROP) and want to secure your parental rights?
Are you a mother seeking to prove the identity of the father of your child?
A paternity action determines the biological identity of a child's father and the rights and obligations of each parent. If you are a loving father who has been denied access to your child, or a mother considering a paternity action in order to receive child support, our experienced Minnesota family law attorneys are here to help you.
We believe in a father's right to a role in his child's life — we also believe both parents have an obligation to support the child financially and emotionally. We work with you to establish child custody and formulate an effective parenting time schedule.
We assist mothers and fathers in the greater Twin Cities metropolitan area and outstate Minnesota with paternity disagreement issues such as:
Our law firm explains all of the paternity options available under Minnesota law. We attend to every detail and work to establish common ground in your paternity case. We encourage our clients to seek an amicable, efficient outcome rather than engage in lengthy litigation. We believe it is better for you to preserve your financial resources for your child than to spend them on contentious litigation. However, if an amicable resolution is not possible, we will zealously advocate for your rights.
If paternity is contested, we will help you through the process of obtaining or submitting to DNA testing. You can submit voluntarily to DNA testing, or the court will mandate testing, if necessary. More information about DNA testing can be found at the Memorial Blood Center website. If DNA testing is needed to provide accurate proof of biological paternity, our family law attorneys can help you pursue that option.
