Paternity Law FAQS

Establishing the paternity of a child is important in a number of areas of Maryland family law as well as in other areas of law, including wills and estates and rights to certain benefits. The economic consequences of establishing paternity can be very high for all parties involved (the mother, any children, and the putative father) and may go on for many years, including the entire time until a child reaches the age of 18 and beyond, so it is essential to have a knowledgeable and experienced Maryland family law lawyer with courtroom experience looking out for your interests through the process of establishing (or challenging) paternity in Maryland.
