Missouri Paternity Matters and Help for Unmarried Parents

Never-married parents can face legal issues that are emotional and complex. Missouri paternity or parentage cases involve establishing parental rights and obligations. Your case will almost certainly involve making custody arrangements that will serve your child best, as well as determining appropriate financial support for each child. It may also involve requests for reimbursement of certain expenses a parent has already incurred in providing for the child or "necessaries," addressing insurance coverage for the child, and requests to change the child's name, among others.

If you are not married to your child's other parent and face issues of custody, visitation, and child support, you should seek the counsel of an attorney experienced with the issues unique to never-married parents. I can help you establish your rights with respect to your child and ensure that orders for child support are fair and appropriate in your circumstances.
