Why You Should Hire a Paternity Disputes Attorney

About Father’s Rights
In Massachusetts, father’s rights grant visitation rights to any man that is the legally adopted or biological father of a child – as long as they can prove their paternity. If two parents cannot agree on a visitation schedule, then a judge will create one for them. The same applies for mother’s rights. During this hearing, child support can also be determined. To determine a fair amount to be paid to the custodial parent, parents must report their income accurately.
