With fatherhood come rights and obligations. When paternity of a child is established, the father has the right to see the child and become involved in the child’s life. Whether or not the father elects to become involved, the father still has an obligation to support the child, pursuant to New York State law.

When there is an issue of fatherhood, important questions must be answered in order to protect the rights and interests of all concerned. At The Mandel Law Firm, we help clients in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island and in Nassau and Westchester counties establish or defend paternity claims, as well as resolve related matters such as child support obligations.
