Paternity Cases In New York

When a child is born to parents who are not married, a biological father must take steps to ensure that he is legally acknowledged to be the child’s legal parent by either:

  • An Acknowledgment of Paternity
  • Obtaining a court Order of Filiation

To have a child support obligation — and to have the legal right to custody or visitation — a parent must have at least one of these documents. Whether you are a mother in need of financial support in raising your child alone, or a father pursuing your rights of custody or access to your child, Venzon Law Firm PC can help.
