Paternity can present a number of difficult issues for either the mother or father in cases of nonmarried couples.
For unmarried mothers, a major goal of paternity is to establish who the biological father of the child is so that they can obtain the child support to which they are entitled by law. An attorney's goal when representing unmarried mothers is to delineate the conservatorship, possession and access times with the father and establish regular financial support.
With fathers of children, it is important to realize that they have a right to possession time with their children or even full custody, if the circumstances warrant it. Unmarried fathers need to know that they have rights as well as financial responsibilities toward their children.
