Parental Rights Attorneys

When a couple is married, the husband is presumed to be the father of the child. However, when unmarried people have a child together, it is necessary to formally establish the paternity of the child. Since a paternity determination is the basis for a variety of parental rights and responsibilities, it can affect child custody, visitation and child support. An action to determine the parent-child relationship may be brought by, among others, the birth mother, the prospective father, the child's personal representation or a child support enforcement agency if the mother is receiving assistance. Whether you are a father looking to establish your parental rights or a mother seeking the child support you need for your child, a skilled family law attorney at Edwards Phillip Amourgis, PC can help you resolve your legal issues professionally. Call 301-768-4606, toll free at 877-631-4002 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.

A determination of the child's paternity may also be useful when the child's parents are married. Perhaps you are the father of a child you once thought of as your own, but you now have new information that you may not be the biological father of that child. If you, the father, have doubts about your child's paternity, we can assist you in seeking a paternity determination. Recent developments have occurred in Maryland's paternity laws which allow a father to challenge his paternity obligations, sometimes even after many years.

Our paternity lawyers can meet with you to answer your questions and assist you in resolving your paternity concerns. At Edwards Phillip Amourgis, PC, we work tirelessly to protect our clients' best interests and legal rights. Call 301-768-4606, toll free at 877-631-4002 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.
