Paternity Actions
The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. This web site is designed for general information only, and the Law Office of Jennifer Kirkhart Curcio does not offer any warranty or representation as to the site's accuracy or completeness. Every legal situation is unique and no information offered here should be used without the advice of an attorney regarding your specific situation. The information presented at this site should not be construed to be formal legal advice nor the formation of a lawyer/client relationship. Email or phone inquiries do not establish a lawyer/client relationship. No lawyer/client relationship is established until a retainer agreement is executed.


Paternity Actions are necessary when a child is born out of wedlock. Until an Order Establishing Paternity is entered, the biological father does not have any enforceable rights. This may require DNA paternity testing to prove paternity. It is also a vehicle to address timesharing, parenting plan and child support. In some instances we also do name changes for the child in question. This action may be initiated by either the Father or the mother of the child.

Another issue that can arise is a Disestablishment of Paternity case where a father discovers that he may not, in fact, be the father. The case law in this area is complex. Jennifer can help you determine if you are eligible. It is important to act quickly if you discover that you are not the biological father of a child. A failure to act quickly can prejudice your case.
