In this new era the lifestyle of many has created the need to consider non traditional relationships and how they may affect the welfare of children. When a child is born outside a traditional marital relationship the responsibility falls equally upon both natural parents to provide for that child. Courts will order the father of a child born outside a marriage to care for the well being of said child as well as issue custody and visitation rights to the father. Paternity must be established first. For more in depth information and to arrange a free consultation please contact our offices at 323-888-1850 or fill out the Contact Us form provided here.
