Minneapolis Paternity Lawyers

At Mack & Santana Law Offices, P.C., we use years of experience to help mothers and fathers achieve the best possible results in paternity actions and the wide range of related matters as well - matters like parenting time/visitation with a child and child support payments.

When Fathers Seek Paternity

When a child is born outside of a marriage, the father may not have legal rights to visitation (called parenting time in Minnesota) with the child until paternity is established. This can come as a shock to many fathers who believe a verbal commitment to a mother or a name on the birth certificate gives them full rights as a dad.

At Mack & Santana Law Offices, P.C., we help fathers establish their right to visitation by filing successful paternity actions. Recognizing that each family's situation is unique, we represent mothers in paternity actions as well.

A child usually benefits from having two parents involved in a child's life. Two parents can mean twice as much (or more) financial support for that child. It can also mean twice as much attention, guidance and support as the child grows. In fact, studies show that children are generally happier, healthier and more successful when both parents take active roles in their lives.

Paternity and Child Support

In some cases, paternity must be established before a child support order can be granted and enforced. The lawyers at Mack & Santana Law Offices, P.C., can help with this  process as well. We guide clients through the process and act forcefully to protect their interests.
