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

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • Joy was great she definitely knows how to settle cases.

    “Joy was great she definitely knows how to settle cases. Love working with her.”

    Rocky

  • I think they offer the best value in LA area.

    “I only have great things to say about the professional services I received at Kraft Miles, A Law Corporation and especially from Joy Kraft Miles! They always went the extra miles for my case, they were flexible with payment plans, picked up the phone or returned calls promptly when I called, and I really felt they had my back during my nasty divorce. They were there and knowledgeable to defend me in court. Joy is smart, energetic, resourceful and skillful at negotiating the terms. I think they offer the best value in LA area. You get results and their cost is reasonable. I highly recommend them to anyone.”

  • To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement.

    “Divorce is not an experience that you look forward to. It's also messy and very stressful because of the emotions and people involved. For me, hiring a lawyer was a necessity not because I wanted to penalize my ex, but because I wanted an expert that would help me navigate the cumbersome process. To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement. She is a consummate professional with a solid reputation at the Chatsworth Courthouse. Initially, I tried to tackle the process myself by going to the self-help center and filling out the documents on my own. This turned out to be overwhelming. She took my case even though I had a pending DV case. I spoke with four lawyers prior to Joy who would not take my case because of the DV. She whipped through my paperwork in one meeting and told me my case could be brought to resolution with my help. I listened to her advice, asked millions of questions and continuously asked her and her legal secretary Marcos to clarify terms, rulings, and paperwork when I did not understand what was going on. I trusted Joy from the first meeting. I think that is really important; to trust the person that you are working with. She was exceptional to work with under the circumstances. I highly recommend Joy as she has the highest integrity and is very professional.”

  • Very blessed to have had Joy as my representation, I recommend her to anybody looking for an attorney of confidence, intelligence, honest, and many steps ahead of the opposition - Joy is superb!

    “Joy is the most marvelous attorney in Los Angeles. From the start she gave a thorough consultation which included both a Domestic Violence Restraining Order and Divorce, she answered many of my questions such as having the notice of related cases, DVRO questions, divorce inquiries, which other law offices I contacted did not inform me of (even with consulting) thus indicating for me, she was the one. She is passionate about her position - which is of high importance to me - especially dealing with a traumatic DVRO, she is delicate and professional. I was quite impressed with her experience in dv/family law - always accruing other information and creative thinking as the cases move. I am so happy with selecting Joy - an empowering woman and attorney who definitely encouraged my confidence going into a very detrimental case, DVRO and Divorce, at the same time.. coming out with a victory, graciously to the thoughtfulness of Joy. The case was stipulated in half the time, which was very beneficial and most importantly: kept me protected. Very blessed to have had Joy as my representation, I recommend her to anybody looking for an attorney of confidence, intelligence, honest, and many steps ahead of the opposition - Joy is superb!”

  • Your encouragement, your wits, and intelligence really pulled me out of a hardship (to say the least) that now feels like a distant memory, though your efforts and giving were remarkable and effectively memorable.

    “Joy, your name gives meaning to what you bring in life! Thank you for being an exceptionally wonderful person. Your encouragement, your wits, and intelligence really pulled me out of a hardship (to say the least) that now feels like a distant memory, though your efforts and giving were remarkable and effectively memorable. You are one amazing woman. I want to wish blessings upon your work, your office, and your gorgeous little family. May God bless you infinitely.”
