Salt Lake and West Jordan Paternity Testing Attorney
Most people agree that every child should have a relationship with both parents. When a child is born outside of a committed relationship, questions of paternity (a legally established father-child relationship) and paternal responsibility can require the help of an experienced family lawyer. Since establishment of paternity can trigger a Child Support Order and bring up other significant issues, it is important to proceed quickly and properly.
The Law Offices of Huy Vu, LLC, specializes in family law practice. We help clients establish paternity and make legal arrangements that provide for the best interests of the children and support functional relationships between children and their fathers. Contact us to speak to one of our attorneys about paternity, child support or visitation matters. The consultation is free.
Establishing Rights and Responsibilities for Fathers
Determining the identity of a child's father may require legal intervention and biological testing when the parents are not married. Under Utah law, paternity can be proven through DNA testing of the child and the father, or it can be affirmed legally when both parents sign a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity form and file it with the State Department of Health, Vital Records and Statistics.
We have handled many Utah paternity cases, including cases where domestic violence complicates matters. For the past three years, Attorney Huy Vu represented hundreds of clients through Legal Aid Society of Salt Lake. Many of his cases involved domestic violence and child abuse. Huy is also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and trained in domestic mediation, with significant experience in resolving family conflicts.
