Paternity Issues Ocean County NJ

Professional Attorneys Fighting for Ocean County New Jersey Parents Establishing Paternity

Due to the increasing amount of children that are being born out of wedlock, both parents are seeking to establish or to challenge paternity. Paternity, in general, carries with it several important rights and obligations. Some of the issues that we have seen our clients be concerned with are child support, child custody, visitation, health insurance and inheritance rights. In order to establish paternity, while there are a number of ways to do so, a DNA test is the most common method. Both the mother and father of the child will be required to the DNA testing. If the DNA test shows at least a 95% probability of parentage, then paternity has been established.

Psychological Parents Can Have the Same Rights as a Natural Parent

If it is determined that the parent is not the biological or natural parent of the child, you can still fight for establishing psychological parent status. Being a psychological parent will entitle you to the same rights as a natural parent. However, determining if you qualify as a psychological parent of a child is complex. At the Law Offices of Jef Henninger, Esq., our highly skilled family law attorneys know how to put the case together to help you achieve the best result. Our Ocean County lawyers have represented a number of clients seeking to establish paternity or challenge paternity. If you or a loved one needs help with a paternity case, call our 24/7 hotline today to receive a free initial consultation with no obligation.
