Nevada law requires that both parents support their biological child. In cases of married parents, the parentage of the child is assumed but, for unmarried parents, the child's father must sometimes be discovered via court-ordered genetic testing. Like other legal matters involving children, these cases tend to be emotionally challenging for those involved and dedicated, level-headed counsel is required to navigate them to the most favorable outcome possible.
At Ford & Friedman, our attorneys understand that paternity is a sensitive matter no matter which side of the courtroom our clients may be on. We work closely with our clients and their families in these cases and offer attentive, one-on-one counsel until the matter is resolved. Both in and outside the courtroom, our clients can rest assured that our Henderson family attorneys will tirelessly endeavor to protect their rights and have their voices heard.

We often assume that establishing paternity is reserved for "deadbeat dad" cases in which mothers need child support enforced. However, the role that paternity testing can play in the family law arena has grown and often is used by fathers themselves to establish parentage and petition for access to their own children.
If you believe that establishing paternity would benefit you or your child, then our compassionate team at Ford & Friedman is ready to speak with you. We can provide you with an honest assessment of your circumstances and, if possible, ensure that your rights and interests remain a priority throughout the duration of your case.
You do not have to face this difficult time without a powerful legal advocate in your corner. Call Ford & Friedman at (702) 904-9898 today.
