Guiding Clients Through Major Transitions for Nearly 10 Years

Adoptions

In blended families, stepparent adoption can give legal recognition and responsibility to a person who has served as a parent. When the biological parent has had no contact or has provided no support for over a year, or when the biological parent gives consent, our stepparent adoption law firm can petition the court for a stepparent adoption. We also help parents with the legal matters surrounding other adoptions.

Paternity

With DNA tests, establishing paternity has become much easier. Legally establishing paternity assures the biological father has the rights and obligations of parenthood. In some cases, the district attorney or a child's mother may petition for a paternity test. When paternity is established, the father will be expected to provide an appropriate level of support for the child.

When a non-marital relationship dissolves, it is important for the father to establish paternity in order to assure his parental rights. Our paternity attorneys can help you establish father's rights to share time with the child. If you have questions about paternity testing in California, contact us online.
