Paternity Lawyer - Establish Paternity - DCSS Actions - Yorba Linda, Placentia, Fullerton, Brea, Anaheim, California

Custody and child support can be problematic in a divorce. In non-marital relationships -in short-term, undefined relationships - the situation is particularly difficult. Paternity lawyer Brenda McCune knows the complex California laws that apply and has helped many clients sort through the facts to understand their individual obligations.

In California, child support payments are affected, in part, by the amount of time a parent spends with a child . This is an incentive for parents to spend more time with their children.

At the Law Office of Brenda McCune, we help our clients assess all the factors involved in the complex child support calculations. Factors such as income, net worth, parenting time and others contribute to a computer calculation that, in theory, establishes child support payments that help equalize the standard of living in both households. There is no judicial discretion in determining child support.

Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) Actions

The Department of Child Support Services in Orange County can file actions to establish the paternity of a child. The county's purpose is to help the child have the financial support of a father. In some cases, however, default judgments are filed against men who are unaware they are fathers or, in the worst cases, are not the fathers. Default judgments, if not dealt with quickly, can result in substantial child support obligations .

If a default paternity judgment has been entered against you, you may still have the right to a paternity test.

Paternity lawyer Brenda McCune has worked with many "dads by default." Some "fathers" simply have the same name as the real biological father. Whether or not you are the father of a child, you owe it to yourself and the child to set the record straight. If a DCSS action has been filed against you, contact the Law Office of Brenda McCune and make sure your rights are protected.
