California Paternity Suit Lawyer
When an unmarried couple has a child together, the paternity of the child is never assumed. Paternity can be established through a DNA parentage test or a blood test. At the law office of David J. Crandall, we represent parents in paternity suits. We can obtain an order for a DNA test to determine the paternity of the child.

Ordering DNA Tests
A father may wish to establish paternity through a DNA test. If a man does not think he is the father, DNA tests can be used to defend against the alleged false claim. Paternity suits can be an emotional experience for women and men alike. Our firm understands these emotions, and we respond accordingly. We strive to keep the emotional and financial costs to our clients to a minimum. We strive to get you through the process as efficiently as possible.
Paternity Suits, Child Support, and Custody
If the man in question is indeed the father, child support and custody may become an issue. The father may wish to have custody of the child and may be required to make child support payments.
