Representing Unmarried Parents in Custody and Support Matters
Unmarried parents are required to financially support their child(ren), and they are entitled to pursue custody rights so that they can have a meaningful part in their children's lives.
There can be complications, though, when the identity of the father is not known. A mother cannot seek child support and a man cannot claim parental rights until it is proven that he is the child's biological father. These can be complex cases, and the assistance of an experienced Saint Paul paternity attorney can help ensure that your interests are protected.
