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

  • Open channels of communication.

    “Very nice staff. Efficient. Open channels of communication.”

    Michael D.

  • In her office she is attentive & mild mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG!

    “Child custody and divorce cases can be costly, anyone going into one should know that up front. That being said, Joy Kraft has been extremely reasonable & willing to work with me. The initial law firm I used was much more expensive & yielded zero results. Iin fact, I believe even hurt my case from the start. Joy took over my case & since then things have been moving in my direction & getting much better. My case is a child custody case & when it initially started (before Joy took over) I only had 6hrs of visitation per week with my child. I now have 3 overnights & 2 weekdays every other week & my case is most certainly not over so more time is on it's way. I went from about 5% time with my child to about 30% with more time most certainly on the way. Joy pays attention to detail & she knows my case just as well as I do. In her office she is attentive & mild-mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG ! She is quit impressive in the courtroom & she knows family law just as well as she will know your case. I could not be happier with my choice of representation. I feel very confident knowing I have a lawyer who knows my case & is fighting tooth & nail on my behalf. I highly recommend Joy Kraft to anyone going through a Family Law issue”
