Palatine Paternity Lawyer
Experienced Rolling Meadows Paternity Lawyer
Paternity laws can be very complex and can vary from case to case depending on the circumstances. Cosley Law represents both men and women involved in paternity cases whether it is the mother looking to confirm the identity of the father or the father who wishes to prove to the court he is indeed the father of a child in order to gain parental rights in regards to custody. A paternity lawyer will provide professional advice that can make the paternity process easier to go through and easier to understand as far as what needs to happen during the process.
Mothers and fathers are both represented by our paternity lawyers at Cosley Law and they are prepared to fight for your rights in a court of law. Our lawyers assist any mother who would like to receive child supportfrom the father. Before this happens, the man she believes is the father will have to submit a DNA testing sample proving he is the father. Fathers who believe that they are the biological fathers will need to prove it through a DNA test as well. Those who are confirmed through this test will have the opportunity to defend their rights to child custody, visitation and support.
Some people wonder if they have to take a paternity test if they don’t want to. The answer is that you may legally be obligated to submit a DNA test by the courts in order to prove the paternity of a child. We understand that this can often be a long, drawn out process that could take weeks or months from start to finish. The paternity lawyers at Cosley Law do their best to help you move your petition through the courts in an efficient and effective manner.
Cases can become especially complicated if there is a stepfather in the picture who would like to adopt the stepchild as his own. There must be consent from the child’s biological father in order for this to happen. If the stepfather legally adopts the child, he will also have to pay to support the child. If a couple is unmarried and the father has admitted to being the father, he must too pay child support.
