An Assertive Pursuit of Legal Recognition of Paternity
Paternity cases in Tulsa involve court action to determine the father of a child born out of wedlock. These actions are often brought to enforce support obligations or take steps toward custody and visitation arrangements. Oklahoma divorce attorney Jeffrey Hensley—founder of Hensley Legal Services, PLLC—remains at the side of fathers and mothers throughout a process that combines legal complexities and sensitive personal issues.
Fathers have rights. A name on a birth certificate will not be enough to assert those rights. In addition, mothers have the right to determine a biological link so they can receive much-needed support for their children. Whether both parties are willing or one is opposed to determining paternity, the courts can often help.
We Understand What’s at Stake When it Comes to Paternity Issues
Fathers want to spend quality time with their children or make up for time that was lost. Determining paternity can also give them the right to receive information regarding their children from schools and hospitals.
Fathers aren’t the only ones who can benefit from confirming paternity, however. Mothers can use this information to get help (financial or otherwise) that they require from the father.
