Paternity law typically involves the legal recognition of the biological father of a child, usually established through genetic testing. For instance, when the paternity of a child is denied by the father in question, the mother can file a paternity suit against the alleged father to establish child support. At Hatfield Law, we are experienced in family law matters like parental rights and paternity. The team will carry out the process smoothly and efficiently with the best interests of the client at heart.

To secure visitation rights and custody over a child, the father must first establish fatherhood. A child born into a marriage is legally presumed to be the child of the father. If you doubt that you are the father based on valid reasons, there are legal challenges to overcome to challenge the obligation of support in the event of divorce.

Prenuptials & Postnuptials

Deciding to get married to your partner is no doubt an exciting and blissful time in life, and you will mostly likely not be thinking about a prenuptial agreement. However, there are an increasing number of couples who are contemplating this path to give them a peace of mind should the unfortunate happen. At Hatfield Law, our attorneys are experienced in helping our clients negotiate both prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that will meet their specific needs and safe keep the relationship with their potential spouse. Our lawyers strive to carry out the process professionally with the best interests of both parties at heart.

Prenuptial agreements are made and signed before marriage. Postnuptial agreements refer to contracts that are made and signed during the marriage. When drafting the agreement, there needs to be fair and full disclosure from both parties.

Child Custody & Support

When parents separate, disputes surrounding child custody and visitation rights may occur. While both parents should ideally make decisions based on the best interests of their child, some parents can be unfit to care for a child for one reason or another. In an ideal situation, both parents would work together to work out a custody plan and agree on visitation rights for the non-custodial parent. However, when parents cannot put their personal feelings for each other aside or one parent has been proven to be incapable of taking proper care of a child, disputes will inevitably arise.

Additionally, when one parent has custody of a child, the non-custodial parent is often required to pay child support to the custodial parent. However, the amount agreed on at the time of separation may not be the amount that should be paid due to changing circumstances. What happens in such a scenario? Your best bet would be to seek the legal assistance of an experienced child support attorney.

Family law proceedings can result due to a family having a crisis, a divorce, or termination of a romantic relationship.
