Long Island Paternity Lawyers

Paternity law is a tricky thing. It depends on where you’re coming from in regards to a paternity case. Are you being sued for child support? Are you trying to establish paternity for child visitation? Are you trying to prove paternity to prevent an adoption? Regardless of your reason, hiring a paternity lawyer is your best bet to ensuring you are well within your rights and the law. Here’s a few things to know about paternity cases:

If you’re married, paternity is assumed.

If you’re not married, that’s when the paternity issues begin to arise. In order to have any legal rights to your biological child, you must sign an “Acknowledgement of Paternity” for your child. The easiest way to have this done is if you are at the hospital at the time of your child’s birth. Then, you simply have to sign the paper and you have legal rights to your relationship with your child. You also have legal responsibilities, too. If you’re not at the hospital at the time of birth, you can go to court with the mother and admit paternity to have an “order of filiation” filed. If you’re not on good terms with the mother, you may want to have a paternity lawyer help you with an “order of filiation” so that you are legally defined as the father of a child. If the mother fights your claim, you may need to have a paternity test done.

If you’re not married, don’t have an “Acknowledgement of Paternity,” or an “order of filiation”…

Legally speaking, you have no rights to your child, regardless of whether the child is biologically yours or not. On the other hand, if you have none of the above, you also have no legal responsibilities or obligations to the child in question. This is where a lot of paternity lawyers come in handy. If you’re being sued for child support and you know the child is not yours, then you’ll want a paternity lawyer to help you submit your legal reason for not being obligated to support that child. If there’s a chance the child may not be yours, you’ll want a paternity test. If the mother of the child is certain the child is yours and you are trying to avoid paying child support, you may be court ordered to take a paternity test. In the event that this is the case, you’ll want your paternity lawyer to help you negotiate the appropriate amount of child support and child visitation, if desired.

If the mother of your child is married to someone else…

In the eyes of the law, the husband is the legal father of that child, even if you are biologically the father of that child. In this case, if you want rights to your child as the biological father, you may file a paternity petition. This situation is a complex case best left to a paternity lawyer, as the court is not obligated to recognize you as the father, even if the paternity results prove the child to be biologically yours.

Paternity attorneys can help you navigate the complex laws that govern unmarried fathers in long island. While the laws may seem outdated and strange, the current laws are what fathers must follow in order to have legal rights to their biological child. Once you establish paternity, your lawyer can help you set up visitation. If you are certain you are not the father and are fighting a paternity or child support case, a paternity lawyer will do everything they can to prevent you from being taken advantage of legally and financially.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
