The Benefits of Establishing Paternity

Father and sonDetermining paternity is important for a number of reasons. First, the child’s emotional health and development are often strengthened by having a relationship with both parents. Second, when a child’s father is known, it provides access to family medical history that could help diagnose and treat potential medical problems.

Establishing paternity also entitles a child to the same rights and privileges as a child whose parents are married, including:

  • Financial support from both parents
  • Having the names of both parents on the child’s birth certificate
  • Legal documentation identifying both parents
  • Health and life insurance coverage from either parent
  • The right to inherit from both parents
  • Social security and veteran’s benefits

  • Attorney Joy Kraft Miles's character and professionalism are above reproach.

    “I am a baby boomer who found himself in a legal battle for my children (infant twins). There were many issues that weighed against me getting custody of my children.

    1. My age vs. the mother's age.
    2. The fact that I live on the east coast.
    3. There were paternity issues.
    4. A lot of accusations made against me which were not true.
    5. A move away order to another country.

    Just to name a few.

    I felt overwhelmed and lost for 8 months and did not know if I was going to be able to get my children or ever see them again. Through it all, Attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her team stayed the course and amassed all of the documentation to prove that the truth was not being told by the mother. They presented a defense that was structured and exact. While opposing counsel was not as prepared. Their hard work paid off, I now have custody of my children. Opposing counsel also was asking for an ungodly amount of money, they wanted me to pay for her legal fees. That was also taken off the table because of the amount of work and fact-finding by Attorney Joy Kraft Miles and her firm. The entire firm from her Mother on down makes you feel like family, which I have to tell you made this a lot easier for me. Attorney Joy Kraft Miles's character and professionalism are above reproach. If you ever find yourself up against a wall and you don't know where to turn look no further than Attorney Joy Kraft Miles.

  • Words can't express how thankful I am to have found this Law Firm.

    “My review is long overdue!

    I met Joy Kraft Miles around July 2019. I had a prior attorney who did not help me one bit and I needed an attorney to represent me for my next hearing that was coming up quickly so I yelped Family Law Attorney's near me and came across this Law Firm.

    While Joy was reviewing the documents submitted in my case, she was very professional yet caring and extremely helpful. I knew instantly I was going to find the light at the end of the tunnel. Not to mention the very reasonable price for the quality of work they provide!

    I ended up being represented by Leyla Zerehi, another Attorney in the Law firm and I'm so thankful for her. She's very knowledgeable, professional and very nice. She truly does what's right and I felt taken care of as far as my wants and needs for a high conflict custody battle and keeping me in the loop of things. I never felt alone, I knew Leyla was taking care of things for me.

    Words can't express how thankful I am to have found this Law Firm. I hope I never need Family Law services again, but if I ever do, I know exactly who to call! I've even recently referred my cousin to Leyla and I would definitely recommend anyone to contact them because they will definitely help you solve your problem.”
