When parents aren’t married, paternity can be confusing, and the reasons to seek to establish it can vary. If you’re a father, you might want to prove paternity in order to seek custody or to take an active parenting role. If you’re a mother, you might want to prove paternity in order to make a case for child support. For either, there is a lot to worry about — everything from a denial to a false accusation to an outright disregard for obligations.

In the state of Missouri, the courts don’t consider whether you had a one-night stand that resulted in a child or were in a long-term domestic relationship. Under the law, someone who fathered a child must fulfill his legal obligation for financial support of the care, upbringing, and overall well-being of his child. Considered as part of this obligation is the expectation, and right, to be an active parent. Feel free to reach out to me for a personal consultation. We will find a time and place that will work best for you, and you won’t be disappointed.
