Establishing Fathers’ Rights And Responsibilities

Establishing paternity is an extremely important part of protecting the parental rights of both men and women. Knowing for certain who a child’s biological parents are will help determine the rights and responsibilities of each parent, including visitation rights and child support rights.

I understand how uncertain life can feel when you are trying to establish paternity. At my law firm, Thomas M. Gurewitz, Attorney At Law, I help both men and women in Waukegan and throughout Lake County, Illinois, who are seeking to establish paternity/parentage of a child.

Guiding Men Through The Paternity Process

The results of a paternity DNA test can have major impact on the lives of everyone involved. I have helped numerous men navigate the process of seeking a DNA test to determine paternity. If the results are positive, I will stay by your side to help you assert your right to spend time with your child through a visitation plan. As your attorney, I will also help you understand your obligation to support your child financially by working out a child support agreement. If your test is negative, I will help make sure you are not adjudicated the father.

Seeking Child Support Through A Paternity Test

If you believe that a man is the father of your child but he is not contributing financially, establishing paternity through a DNA test is crucial. As your lawyer, I will assist you in seeking a paternity test. If the results are positive, I will help you seek child support and create a custody or visitation plan that is in the best interests of your child.
