The firm also helps men who are responding to allegations that they are the father of a child and wish to contest the allegations to prove they are not the father.
Often, mothers seek the firm’s services when they need to initiate a child support action against the father.

Whatever the reason, a qualified attorney can help you seek results that are best for you and your children.
