Bay Area Paternity/Parentage Attorney
Family law attorney and mediator Lisa J. Auer handles the spectrum of paternity and parentage issues for clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. A parentage or paternity case is an action to either establish or disprove a parent-child relationship. Parentage actions are usually brought between parties who are not married or registered domestic partners. A parentage judgment determines the legal parents of a child. It establishes all of the rights and obligations stemming from the parent-child relationship, including custody and visitation, child support matters, inheritance rights, and rights to Social Security and other benefits.
