For parents who are married, paternity or legal fatherhood is established at the birth of the child. In the event that the parents are not married, establishing legal fatherhood must be ordered by the court. Having the help and legal guidance of an accomplished West Bend family law attorney can help you to establish paternity in a timely manner. At Derr & Villarreal, LLC, we can provide you with qualified and passionate legal counsel to help you resolve paternity issues.

If either parent doubts the legal fatherhood of the child, the parent can seek for the court to order a test to determine if the person is indeed the biological father. Should the test confirm they are the father, they can be required to pay child support. The father can also be required to provide insurance and cover health costs associated with the child.
At Derr & Villarreal, LLC, we can help ensure that your child receives the rights and support they need. We genuinely want to help our clients and their children. Our attorneys are qualified and experienced to help with paternity and other family law cases.
