A parentage action deals with custody of a child between two parties who were never married. Many of the difficult and challenging issues that are part of a divorce also are a part of a parentage action. I always put the best interests of the child at the center of the legal proceedings. I work with my clients to find creative solutions in order to minimize the impact of the case on the child’s life and development. Typically, I can work together with the opposing attorney utilizing mediation to resolve the case efficiently and with the least amount of animosity as possible. However, in some cases, trial cannot be avoided and in such instances I will vigorously represent your interests.
