Fairfax Paternity Lawyers

When children are born to married parents, there is typically little doubt as to the identity of the father. When a child is born to unmarried parents, however, the matter may not always be quite as clear. Without a definitive answer about who the father is, issues surrounding responsibility for child support, parental rights, the child's right to inherit property if the father dies without a will and other issues can become extremely complex.

At the law firm of Surovell Isaacs & Levy PLC, our dedicated Fairfax paternity attorneys represent clients on all sides of these issues. Whether you are a mother seeking to establish the identity of the father in order to seek child support, an alleged father needing to prove that you have no relation or responsibility to the child, or a man who believes he is the father and is seeking parental rights, we are prepared to provide the representation you need.

Northern VA DNA Test Attorneys

DNA testing can determine with certainty if a person is biologically related to a child. When you hire our firm, our lawyers will see that the proper tests are ordered to accurately identify the father. We also have experience handling international cases where DNA testing is not required. If there is any question about the accuracy of the results, we will work to ensure that the tests were administered correctly and that the person who administered them was qualified to do so.

Once the identity of the father has been determined, we will develop a customized action plan designed specifically to address your concerns. Our firm's extensive experience handling complex child support and custody issues allows us to provide the focused, results-oriented representation you need.

Fathers' Rights for Sperm Donors

In some cases, a man who has donated sperm may have parental rights. These are extremely complex cases that require the attention of a skilled attorney. If you donated sperm and have not been recognized as the father, we can review your case to see if you have legal standing to claim parental rights. One step you can take immediately in an effort to protect your rights is to register on the Virginia Putative Father Registry.
