Understanding Poway Paternity Attorney Services in San Diego Superior Court

There may be instances in San Diego where the parents of a child are not married at the time of birth or conception. Paternity disputes are known to arise at these times and the complexities of the laws pertaining to these cases demand that the services of a Poway paternity attorney be engaged. The services of Poway paternity attorney is also crucial considering that as per the California Family Law Code, the absolute resolution of a paternity case is a pre-requisite for the Court to pass judgments on child custody, child visitation, and child support cases. The right of a child to obtain benefits through his father, like social security, health insurance, military and survivor benefits, and inheritance dues is also dependent on the paternity order passed by the Court.

An understanding and consequent appreciation of the services of a Poway paternity attorney can be had in the context of a discussion of the relevant laws prevalent in San Diego.

The Paternity Laws and Paternal Rights in North County

In many major hospitals of San Diego, fathers may opt to voluntarily declare their paternity at the time of a live birth. This declaration is considered valid in the eyes of the law and vests upon the man all the rights and obligations that are legally associated with paternity. The law also presumes that a man is the father of a child if he and the child’s natural mother were married to one another when the child was born or within the 300 days preceding the birth of the child. He is also considered the father of the child and therefore obliged to fulfill his paternal duties if the Court decrees him to do so or when he has consented to be named the father of the child in the birth certificate. There are sundry other instances when a man is legally considered to be the father of a child and a Poway paternity attorney is the best person to guide his client on his constitutional rights and obligations as a father so that he does not fail his duties by his child or attract civil and/or criminal penalties.

A Poway paternity attorney not only helps clients in the preparation of pleadings but also makes court appearances to present a strong case for his client and try and affect a favorable outcome for his client. But of course, in complicated cases like when a man voluntarily declares his paternity only to discover later on that he is not the biological father of the child, the Court may choose to set aside or not the voluntary declaration depending on what constitutes the best interests of the child.
