What are the Services of a Del Mar Paternity Attorney?

According to findings announced by the American Association of Blood Banks, more than 30% of men in the United States suspect they are not the biological fathers of their children. And some of them are right! So, it is not hard to imagine the number of paternity cases that come up for resolution in the courts of San Diego County; or anywhere else for that matter!

Attorneys and clients alike agree that paternity suits are not only one of the most emotionally draining of all legal cases but are also some of the most challenging in terms of their wide-ranging repercussions in the family law courts. As per the laws prevalent in North County, the absolute resolution of a paternity suit is the pre-requisite in deciding the outcome of child custody cases and the ensuing child visitation rights and child support claims. And this is not all!

A Hard Working Attorney Is Worth More Than His Fees!

The outcome of a paternity suit is crucial to the determination of the various monetary benefits that a child is legally entitled to receive via his father. These include, amongst others, social security, health insurance, military and survivor benefits, and also inheritance rights. But an attorney does much more than just these benefits for the child; he also can assist with forging emotional connections and patching broken relations with a court ordered reunification plan. Therefore, with so much at stake, it goes without saying that hiring the services of a Del Mar paternity attorney is imperative to increase the likelihood of landing a fair and favorable outcome.

The Child’s Security Is Paramount

Skeptics may argue that the role of a Del Mar paternity attorney has become redundant with the coming of DNA tests but the truth of the matter is that many only believe these issues have become more complex. For instance, there are many instances of paternity cases where a man, after having made a voluntary declaration of paternity, discovers that he is not the biological father of the child and the DNA test confirms this. And such cases are becoming more common by the day given the ready availability of DNA test kits and the accuracy of the test results.

In such instances, an attorney has to analyze the law and the facts of the case to increases the chances of success of obtaining a ruling in favor of his client. The Court takes into account all aspects of the father-child relationship and passes a judgment that is in accord with the current state of the law.
