Proven Arkansas Lawyers Help Clients Resolve Paternity Cases

Thorough Little Rock firm handles disputes over legal fatherhood

When a child’s parents are unmarried, action must be taken to establish legal fatherhood. Sometimes, this can be handled quickly and easily, but if paternity is disputed, a test is usually administered to determine the identity of the child’s father. At Worsham Law Firm, P.A. in Little Rock, we handle all types of paternity matters on behalf of alleged fathers, men who are not married to the mother of their child, and mothers seeking child support. Our firm provides honest, thorough counsel regarding the relevant legal standards and is committed to doing what is best for each child involved.

Dedicated attorneys work to establish fair custody and child support orders

Birth certificates for infants born to married couples automatically list the husband’s name as the father. In other situations, we strive to resolve paternity matters fairly and promptly so that children and parents can build strong relationships. In a free consultation, we can explain the legal standards associated with:

  • Voluntary paternity acknowledgements — Unmarried fathers and mothers who agree on their child’s parentage can easily execute a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity. If no father’s name is listed on the birth certificate, the document can be updated through the Department of Health’s Vital Records office. We also assist men who are looking to establish legal fatherhood and child custody rights over the objections of former relationship partners.
  • Mothers attempting to obtain child support — Young people deserve to have emotional and financial support from both of their parents regardless of what disagreements might exist. Should a decision on paternity be necessary to secure child support, we’ll work diligently to obtain the relevant scientific and factual evidence.
  • Men disputing paternity claims — It is unjust for someone to be legally responsible for a child if their paternity is based on a mistake or a lie. Should you be faced with an unwarranted allegation, our lawyers can challenge the case brought against you.

Disagreements over alleged paternity can be sensitive and highly contentious. If you have questions about paternity or fathers’ rights in Arkansas, it’s best to obtain sound advice from a qualified family law attorney. We will assert your rights with the utmost discretion and professionalism.
