Paternity & Non-Marital Relationships

California Paternity & Non-Marital RelationshipsIn today's world, there are fewer "traditional" families. Many unmarried parties face challenges in working out plans to involve both parents in their children's lives. Mediation provides a perfect forum tailored to address the legal/financial/ emotional concerns of both unmarried parents. As a family law attorney who has been practicing since 1986, Judith C. Nesburn understands that it is important to the family that both parents' rights and responsibilities be recognized.

Under California law, a father may file a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity when his baby is born. This initial step makes it easier to establish parentage and secure parenting rights and responsibilities such as child support and custody or visitation. In certain instances, concepts of "presumed" paternity require fathers to be diligent in protecting their rights. Acknowledging paternity gives children the same rights as the children of married couples, including inheritance. In seeking to establish paternity, it is wise to have a skilled family law attorney who can guide you through the process.

Attorney Nesburn recommends that birth mothers and birth fathers work together on child custody and child visitation issues. Father's rights and Mother's rights can be safeguarded as they work jointly to agree on plans serving the best interests of their child or children.

Thanks to her long-term experience in Mediation, Judith is comfortable working with unmarried couples who may not agree on child custody and child visitation or child support issues. She can help clients work out these important issues in the best interests of the children and the family.

Attorney Judith C. Nesburn has been practicing in family law since 1986, focusing on Mediation and Collaborative Law approaches. She has helped parties in non-traditional relationships enter into agreements involving custody and support issues.
