Family Law Attorney • Parental Separation

Clients of the family law firm of Richard T. Bell & Associates, P.C., often ask for legal advice and representation in paternity matters for one of the following reasons:

  • A man has been named in a paternity action as the purported father and wishes to contest the matter by way of a DNA test.
  • A father wants to secure custody and/or visitation rights when a child of his has not yet been legally identified as such.
  • A husband suspects (or knows, if he and his wife have been separated long enough) that his wife's child is not his, and wishes for help in determining his responsibility to that child if his suspicions prove to be correct.
