Minneapolis Paternity Lawyers
Legal Assistance with Fathers’ Rights Concerns
At Mack & Santana Law Offices, P.C., we use our years of experience
to help mothers and fathers achieve the best possible results in paternity
actions and a 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 and custody and parenting time are pursued
in court. 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 custody and parenting time by filing successful paternity actions.
Recognizing that each family’s situation is unique, we represent
mothers in paternity actions as well. If you are dealing with a paternity
action, Mack & Santana Law Offices, P.C. can assist you.
A child usually benefits from having 2 parents involved in their 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.
