Paternity cases are cases involving the family court system. Often times, these types of cases come about because a parent either has to establish paternity in order to get child support or because they want custody of their child. This is an area of law that most people think they know what they need because of “what they have heard,” rather, once they meet with an attorney, they find out it is more complex than they imagined. Most of these cases involve parents who were not married at the time the child was born. Therefore, if you have found yourself in a situation where you need to establish paternity for child support and custody, or if you have been served a petition in which paternity is being established for child support and custody, Attorney Richard Perry has the experience to represent you. He has represented hundreds of these types of cases across the State of Alabama and would be happy to put his experience to work for you.
