Under California paternity law, "the child of a wife cohabiting with her husband — is conclusively presumed to be a child of the marriage." However, in many cases, a child is born out of wedlock, or the mother's husband is not the father. Establishing paternity can have a significant impact on custody, visitation rights, and child support obligations. While many parents choose to establish paternity voluntarily, it is sometimes necessary to obtain a court order. Our attorneys have experience handling the legal aspects of all types of paternity matters.
