Paternity Attorney Indio, California

desert hot springs

In a perfect world two parents plan to have a child and are excited about raising it together. Unfortunately, that is not always what happens. Whether you are trying to determine who the father of your child is, or if someone is naming you as the father and you don't think that is correct, you need someone who can help.

Barbara E. Kristal Attorney offers the representation you need in paternity and child custody matters. With more than 25 years of experience, we have the experience to help clients understand the situation, the options they have and the legal ramifications of each choice.

The first step in paternity and child custody cases is determining paternity. If a DNA test shows that a man is the father of a child, then we can work with the parents to create a parenting plan. There are numerous factors that are taken into consideration when the custody and visitation schedule is being determined, including:

  • The age of the child
  • Emotional connection between each parent and the child
  • Which parent has had custody of the child
  • How much time the other parent spends with the child
  • The living situation of each parent

Using these factors, Barbara can help you create a parenting plan that takes into account the needs and best interests of each parent and child.
