Many married couples separate when determining whether they should split permanently or work towards resolving their issues. These couples may choose to receive a court-approved legal separation that defines the legally enforceable rights and obligations surrounding the separation without permanently ending the marriage.
Paternity, or parentage, relates to the rights and duties of a mother and father. Proving paternity, the rights of parents of children born out of wedlock, child support, parenting time and parental decision-making are a few things that are determined through paternity rights. If you have questions about paternity, and your rights, we can help.
