The lawyers of Hoffman Walker & Smith  represent both mothers and fathers in paternity cases. When there is a question of paternity, it is not only a difficult legal experience, it is also a difficult emotional experience. There are many important decisions to be made when paternity of your child is in question. It is important that you have someone to help you through this stressful process. Our lawyers will inform you of your rights and help you formulate a plan to get through this difficult time of your life.

Determining Paternity

Paternity of a child is generally established with a DNA test. However, signing a statement of paternity will generally eliminate the need for this test. It is important to understand that determining paternity is only the first step in the process. The ultimate goal of proving paternity is to settle issues such as:

  • Establishing Legal Paternity
  • Child support
  • Visitation
  • Medical care

In most Northern Kentucky counties, you may also settle issues of custody and tax dependency exemption.
