Paternity law involves the mother, the child, and especially the father, as it can protect the latter from a judge denying custody or visitation rights. It also protects the mother in child custody and child support situations. There are several ways in which paternity can be established, and in some cases, it might require a DNA or paternity test.
Once a paternity action is taken, paternity can be established. Once established, the court will order the father to pay child support to the child, and grant visitation or custody rights.
Unfortunately, sometimes parents do not have visitation rights to their children. This is common in cases involving domestic or child abuse. With an experienced paternity & custody lawyer, you can fight for the visitation you deserve.
Visitation rights allow the parent who does not have full custody of the child to see the child. Visitation schedules are often something that a paternity lawyer can help establish between the parents involved. Tammy Karas-Griggs Attorney at Law understands these situations are not always easy, especially for the child. Once the paternity has been revealed, she will help both parents involved to meet on common ground, and give the children and the parents the best possible options moving forward.
A paternity lawsuit can be a very stressful time for a family. In the state of Louisiana, there are certain protocols and regulations that must be met in order for the paternity test to be initiated and the lawsuit to proceed. Let our paternity lawyer at Tammy Karas-Griggs Attorney At Law take on that burden for you. Contact Tammy Karas-Griggs Attorney At Law for a consultation today or call (985) CUSTODY.
