When a family dissolves, it is important to establish paternity for the well-being of the child involved. At The Law Office of Larry D. Catlett, I have helped numerous clients with paternity issues for divorce and child support and custody cases. If you need legal help to establish paternity for your child, you can trust me, a Richmond divorce lawyer, to provide you with individual attention and diligent services.

It is best to establish paternity as soon as possible after the child’s birth in order to receive child support. While the father can voluntarily sign a written admission of paternity, a DNA paternity test can provide evidence in addition to a factual determination by the court. I can handle the paperwork and answer your questions along the way so you don’t have figure it out alone. My compassionate and experienced team of Richmond divorce lawyers knows how to navigate the legal system and works to help you achieve the most favorable outcome possible. Even in complex family law cases, I can provide you with reliable, effective counsel.
