Professional And Discreet Help In Paternity Matters

At the Law Office of Michael N. Splivalo, our lawyer has more than 20 years of experience helping people resolve their family law matters. If you have questions about a potential child and are concerned about your rights and obligations, contact us for a free initial consultation.

Paternity and Child Support Obligations

If a DNA test determines that you are the father of a child, you may be required to pay child support. These obligations can last up until your child turns 19 years old. Our experienced attorney can meet with you to assess your situation and let you know what you may be obligated to pay.

We also provide diligent representation if there is a dispute over who the actual father of a child is. If a paternity case is filed by the Department of Child Support Services (DCSS), we have the experience necessary to effectively deal with the DCSS. You can count on us to work alongside you and keep you informed of the status of your case as we fight to assert your legal rights.

Paternity and Child Visitation

If it is established that you are the father of a child, you may or may not have visitation rights. Depending on your situation, you may be able to seek visitation and custody. At our Fresno family law office, our lawyer will meet with you to discuss your desires in establishing a relationship with your child. We will stand up for your rights and work hard to help you achieve your goals.

We Handle All Types of Child Custody Cases

Our areas of practice encompass much more than the establishment of parentage. We can help you in nearly any type of child custody matter, including issues surrounding:

  • Visitation
  • Holiday visitation
  • Child support
  • Relocation and move-aways

If you separate from the parent of your child, it is important to file for custody, if you so desire.
