Paternity

Paternity

Families come in all shapes and sizes, and it is not uncommon for children to be born outside of a marriage. Because of this, paternity issues can arise. Determining paternity is important for many reasons, including parental rights, child support and future parent-child relationships.

At West Michigan Divorce, we want to assist you with your paternity matters. We work with married and unmarried mothers and fathers, partners, ex-spouses, stepparents and other involved parties to help them understand the necessary steps it will take to determine the paternity of their child and why such a legal determination is crucial.
