Paternity

Efficient Resolution for Child Support Paternity Concerns

A paternity determination is essential in a variety of cases to establish parental rights and responsibilities. Additionally, it helps to determine child support obligations. This determination is especially crucial under circumstances where an unmarried couple has a child. At Daprile-Bell Family Law Offices, our well-respected lawyers possess an intimate knowledge of the complexities of paternity law in California. We help clients fight to obtain child support, and we also assist fathers with exercising their parental rights.

Our attorneys leverage over seven decades of combined legal experience to help clients resolve contentious paternity disputes. Most paternity cases focus on the following circumstances:
