Paternity

A paternity suit is often a result of two parents raising a child that are not married. The father is typically responsible for child support by the mother filing a child support order but that order does not come with any visitation and/ or custody arrangement. Until and when the Missouri legislature resolves this contradiction, fathers often receive the burdens of having child without any of the benefits of quality time without a paternity judgment filed on their behalf. The Yee Law Firm, P.C. can help balance out this experience of being a parent with the legal remedy of a paternity suit. This allows the parent a fixed or court ordered schedule for when and where and how long a parent can have custody and time with their child. We recommend that all paternity suits follow with a dna test to confirm paternity to assure that a child is indeed yours before the final judgment is entered even if you are on the birth certificate already as a matter of procedure.
