A parent and a child have a very special bond that should last a lifetime. However, things and circumstances change and the bond is broken through no fault of the child or the parent. Often, during a divorce or some other dispute, paternity questions might arise to break the bond. What was previously assumed is now at debate. The paternity of the child is at issue. A spouse, adult child, or other family member would like to know who is the legal father or mother.
It is certainly a good idea to consult with a paternity lawyer to help with legally establishing the paternity of the child.

Often, the parties involved require legal assistance to protect their rights under the law.
